GS-23 Call for Abstracts

Gender and Inclusion Summit 2023

Submission Deadline: 11:59 pm WAT, Wednesday, 18th October 2023.

It is our pleasure to announce a call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations for the Gender and Inclusion Summit themed “Building Bridges: Advancing Gender and Inclusion through the Intersection of Trade and Health” organized by the Policy Innovation Centre of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group coming up on November 28 and 29, 2023.

The Gender and Inclusion Summit 2023 (GS-23), will take place in Abuja, Nigeria. The GS-23 encourages researchers, academics, activists, practitioners, government officials and diplomats to submit abstracts or synopses of gender/inclusion research or projects aligned to the Summit’s theme.

Trade refers to the voluntary exchange of goods, services, or resources between individuals, organizations, or countries for money or other valuable considerations. On the other hand, health refers to "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Health and improved well-being promote economic growth by expanding the labour force, increasing productivity and output.

The Gender and Inclusion Summit 2023 will explore strategies to advance gender and inclusion by harnessing the potential of trade to promote economic participation, reduce inequalities and improve access to opportunities as well as innovative approaches to bridging healthcare financing gaps and access to quality healthcare services.

Kindly note that an abstract writing webinar will be hosted by 1.00pm, Wednesday, 30th August 2023 (WAT)
