The 60th Annual CARPHA Health Research Conference will be held in Grenada from April 23rd to April 25th, 2015.

The theme for 2015 is Violence and Injuries: An Urgent Public Health and Development Issue. However, we will also accept quality research papers in all priority health areas (e.g. NCD, HIV, Environmental Health, Health Systems, etc.).

Violence and Injuries comprise topics such as intentional and unintentional injuries including interpersonal and domestic violence, sexual abuse, suicide; mental health; risk factors including drug and alcohol use/misuse; their health and socioeconomic consequences; preventive efforts and strategies; etc.


Papers are selected based on scientific merit and relevance to the priority health areas of the Caribbean. 

Authors should indicate whether they prefer Oral or Poster presentations. As a guide, POSTER presentations are preferable for papers that contain large amounts of data, deal with particular techniques, report highly specialized work, ‘research in progress’ and ‘programmes being implemented’.

Authors whose papers are accepted, but who do not present will not have their papers considered for the next two years (unless they have a good reason.)


THE DAVID PICOU YOUNG RESEARCHER PRIZE is awarded for the best paper presented by a Caribbean investigator who is not yet an established researcher.

STUDENT PRIZE will be awarded to the best paper presented by a student/student group.

POSTER PRIZE is awarded for the best poster.

(Persons who wish to be considered for the David Picou and Student prizes should indicate such in the transmittal letter.)

Manuscripts and Abstracts should be submitted by: 01st November 2014.
