The symposium ‘Health(y) Research in Resource-Poor Settings: Money, Methods & Morals’ aims to promote International Health Research, in its broadest sense. It brings together experienced senior academics and a new generation of enthusiastic scientists to focus on various practical issues currently confronting field research. All this is in line with the NVTG’s newly reaffirmed commitment to research as one of its core activities.

During the plenary morning session, three experts in their respective fields will give a discourse on the subjects highlighted in the symposium title:
Money: Javier Guzman ( M D , M S c ) is Director of Research of the Health Policy Division at the George Institute of International Health London.
What are the effects of the current economic crisis on international health research? Who is pulling the strings in allocating grants to international health research? Are neglected diseases losing out to more prestigious research projects?


Methods : B art Knols ( P h D , M B A ) is a Visiting Scientist at the University of Amsterdam and Managing Director at K & Consulting.
The ‘art of’ conducting research in resource-poor settings is the focus of Knols’ lecture, in which he will sketch the contours of field research in international health, touching upon its challenges, opportunities and methodological aspects.

Morals: Ben White (P h D ) is Profoessor of Rural Sociology at the Institute of Social Studies in the Hague.
In his keynote lecture, Professor White will explore the boundaries of research, taking into consideration ethical connotations and moral aspects. Does conducting health research in resource-poor settings pose additional challenges for researchers in this regard?
