Official satellite sessions are an opportunity for entities/organizations to plan a special session. Satellite session topics should support the overall goals and vision of the International Maternal Newborn Health Conference (IMNHC) 2023, center around the experiences and voices of people living and working in low- and middle-income countries, and address major causes of and contributors to maternal and newborn mortality. The satellite format lends itself well to technical consultation and exchange, such as operationalizing new guidelines, as well as capacity-building sessions around critical topics such as manuscript writing, advocacy, human centered design, etc. Other illustrative examples of satellite session topics include highlighting successful approaches or socializing an agenda for MNH research.
IMNHC will provide the meeting room space, standard audiovisual and room set up, and include the event in the official conference program. The selection of official satellite sessions are application-based and must be open to all registered attendees.
Entities/organizations may also organize and fund their own unofficial satellites or side events that are not considered part of the official IMNHC program and will be held outside of IMNHC program hours. These unofficial satellite/side events do not require an application.
