Have you written a master's thesis or dissertation in the field of global health? And do you have a concrete idea of what the Dutch healthcare sector can gain from your thesis or dissertation? Then enter to try and win the KCGH-contest!
The prize aims to challenge master's students and PhD students to make insights from their research applicable to the Dutch health sector. Consider, for instance, a study on maternal and foetal mortality in a low-income country. Which aspects of that research are (also) relevant to the Dutch health sector? How can this knowledge be made applicable?
KCGH wants to contribute to the increase of knowledge. We are convinced that in exchange and interaction, new/different knowledge is created, because new possibilities are explored, thinking is 'switched on' and there is room for new discoveries and surprising insights. In order to stimulate this 'introduction', KCGH is awarding a prize to master's students and PhD students who have written a global health thesis or dissertation and have managed to make insights from it applicable to the Dutch health sector. The prize will go to the person with the best idea and consists of:
