The sponsorship scheme was set up to enable worthy medical candidates, who otherwise might not be able to afford, to attend the conference. The learnings would then be applied to medicine provided in extreme, front line, disaster & relief environments and in turn relieve suffering and advance medical care in the situations where typically treatment would be laking. The award also serves to promote new qualified individuals who show great promise in the area of disastor, humantarian and remote medicine.
Successful applicants must have demonstrated considerable commitment to the field of humanitarian or disaster medicine and be registered as a medical professional, must be free for the entire conference and will be expected to prepare a post conference report.
