Skill Building Workshop

Introduction to Skills Building Workshops

Skills building workshops are offered to professionals of all nationalities who will be attending the IAAH 2017 Congress in New Delhi and who want to improve their skills in various important issues related to adolescent health and medicine. They will take place the day before the congress, which is on October Thursday 26th. These training workshops aim to be inter-disciplinary, interactive and structured. They will be facilitated by experts in the field. Half-day workshops will last 3 ½ hours (either from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.), including a 30 minutes break. Participants will be charged a modest fee: US$15 for LMIC nationals and US$25 for others for each half-day workshop. The full-day workshops will be from 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and the fees for these will be US$25 for LMIC nationals and US$40 for other participants.

It is possible to participate to the Skills Building Workshops without attending the congress but the fees required will be slightly increased, that is: US$25 for LMIC nationals and US$40 for others for each half-day workshop. The full-day workshops will be charged US$35 for LMIC nationals and US$50 for other participants.

If you want to participate in a workshop signal your interest without delay, if possible before September 15: workshops will only run if there are at least 12 participants registered by middle September, so that the list of available workshops will be finalized by September 20. Late registration will still be possible, but only for the workshops kept on the list next September.

If you want to register, you should select online and rank three topics, by order of priority. Participants will be informed by September 20th about which of the workshop(s) they can join, and how to transfer the fees. It is possible to register to two workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, but if you want to attend two different workshops, please let us know, and then select four topics instead of three.
