IFHIMA and HIMAA are inviting companies and individuals to sponsor presenters/delegates from Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) to attend 2023 IFHIMA/HIMAA Congress. The sponsorship will contribute towards funding of the registration fee in part or full. We would like to enable the Congress attendance for LMIC delegates to share their expertise, research projects, and practical professional experiences and provide an opportunity for them to participate in this leading international event which they may otherwise be unable to take part.
Our Conference Committee members will assess the applications and award the sponsorship. An acknowledgement of your sponsorship (a company logo or individual name) will be advertised on our web page, in the published Congress Proceedings, and noted with thanks during the Congress. Should you wish to remain anonymous, your preference will be respected, and you will not be named publicly. Priority for sponsorship support will be given to LMIC members whose submissions have been accepted for presentation at the Congress, and who are required to register and pay by 29 August 2023.
We hope to welcome our valued international colleagues to Australia where we can showcase, network and learn from each other. HIMAA accepts sponsorship from AUD$30.00 and will issue an invoice for the payment. Please open the link to complete your sponsorship details. We hope you will consider this initiative.
For international colleagues, you may also sponsor through IFHIMA, at this link for your sponsorship details.
