The theme for the festival will be ‘Global Health: the Good, the Bad and the Economy’. Abstract submission does not have to be confined to this subject and there will be no weighting applied to this topic when abstracts are chosen.

Following extremely successful Festival of Public Health UKs in 2012, 2013 and 2014, the Manchester Urban Collaboration on Health, in association with the Manchester Medical Society Public Health Forum, is pleased to announce that the Festival will be returning on July 2nd 2015.

Due to the growing international audience, we have also renamed the Festival as the International Festival of Public Health UK.
