The Conference organisers will be Professor Stephen Howes, Director of the Development Policy Centre at ANU; Dr Joel Negin, Associate Professor of International Public Health and Deputy Head of School at the University of Sydney School of Public Health; and Camilla Burkot, Research Officer at the Development Policy Centre.
