Program 2018

We are excited to present you with these first glimpses into the HiD2018 conference program! This is undoubtedly the largest Health in Difference program we have ever been able to assemble. 

The program is a huge collaborative work-in-progress. We are currently working with presenters to finalise the timings and formats for each item.

Below is a list of the presentations and workshops that have been offered a place at the conference. Full details of each presentation, and a very special opening plenary event, will be published in the coming weeks.

Keep in mind:

  • The program is subject to change. 
  • There are some presentations not yet listed here! We will add these as details are made available.
  • When searching this list please keep in mind that this conference brings together people from around Australia and choices of language may differ regionally or contextually. 
  • The ‘extra tags’ column has been added to help with search results and is not intended to summarise each presentation.

A note for presenters: If you are a presenter and have not yet confirmed your place in the program, or have a question, please contact
