    Description

    Chaired by Professor Ewen Ferlie of King's College London Department of Management, the second London-based International Health Conference brought together researchers aiming to promote health and wellbeing through improved health services in Europe and around the world.

    The 2016 conference in London welcomed delegates from across 40 countries presenting over 160 oral and poster presentations.

    Our paper presentation documented the growing mental health burden for
    children inside Syria. Screening tools for depression, anxiety and PTSD were
    applied to 500 children across two different cities inside the country. Our results are important for mental health responders and allied professionals working in
    Syria. The findings were recently published in a journal paper.
