As one of the University of Otago’s flagship research centres the Otago Global Health Institute (OGHI) holds an annual conference, which is an opportunity for researchers working across diverse disciplines in global health, to meet, discuss projects, and foster new collaborations.
We are delighted to host Professor Mark McGillivray from Deakin University and 2017 William Evans Visiting Fellow who will join us as the keynote speaker and also present the McAuley Oration.
Mark McGillivray is Research Professor in International Development at the Alfred Deakin Institute, Deakin University. His previous positions include Chief Economist of the Australian Agency for International Development and Deputy Director of the World Institute for Development Economics Research of the United Nations University. Professor McGillivray is also an Inaugural Fellow of the Human Development and Capability Association. His main research interests are the allocation and effectiveness of foreign aid and measuring achieved human well-being. He has written extensively on the causes of inequalities in health outcomes in developing countries.
Following on from the OGHI annual conference is the ASID New Zealand Annual Meeting which features presentations in a variety of topics including infectious diseases, infection control, antibiotic stewardship, microbiology, travel medicine and public health. It also includes a Trainee Day.
