About The Lancet Conferences

The Lancet Conferences provide a much needed vehicle to convene key international experts to promote discussion and debate in an educational environment. Our aim is to review up-to-date evidence and explore broad public-health issues to increase awareness where there is an educational gap, and to influence and inform clinical practice where appropriate.

If you would like to be kept informed about future conferences organised by The Lancet relevant to your specialty, you can opt in to receive emails from The Lancet. We will then notify you of any relevant new events we are planning.
