The forum gathered around 900 participants from 450 institutions in 109 countries. Participants represented governments, multilateral and bilateral aid agencies, international and national foundations and NGOs, women's organisations, research institutions and universities, the private sector and the media. Abstracts cover topics including health research, disease prevention, child mortality, maternal health, substance abuse, mental and neurological health
