From Let Me Know:

The Global Forum for Health Research and The Lancet are holding their third joint essay competition for the under-30s on the theme- “Climate change and health: research challenges for the health of vulnerable populations”.

Details after the jump.


Rules and Guidelines:
  1. Each author may submit one essay only.
  2. Essays may be submitted in English or French and should be 1500 words maximum.
  3. Essays must be based on the author’s own ideas and not be derived from another source.
  4. Essays must not have been previously published.
  5. Entries are individual (i.e., the work of a single author).
  6. They should include original, even provocative ideas and not be technical or academic texts: tables, charts and figures are probably not necessary; references should be limited.
  7. Authors are free to be idealistic, passionate, to take established practices to task, albeit in a constructive fashion.
  8. Within the context of research for health, the theme allows authors to include any aspect that interests them particularly – for example, extreme weather, natural disasters, fuels and energy, transport, water management, vectors, food production, demographics, urban planning, security.
