Conference Participation Support for LMIC members
The annual Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) conference is at the centre of G-I-N’s strategy around networking and provides the optimal opportunity for introductions to like-minded professionals, as well as taking part in various working group and regional community meetings, while attending the conference. G-I-N recognises that funding is not always available to those members from low and lower middle income countries and intends for the conference to be as accessible as possible for those members.
