Join us for the second instalment of AbSPORU’s webinar series on Integrating Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and Sex and Gender-Based Analysis (SGBA+) into Patient-Oriented Research (POR).

We have an exciting session lined up with great speakers who will cover a range of topics including:

  • Challenges in creating KT tools for diverse audiences, and strategies for translating content and messaging for diverse cultures;
  • Working with a diverse public/patient advisory group to foster more inclusive and impactful KT;
  • KT approaches for encouraging vaccine uptake; and
