Support for Participation

Scholarships for delegates

To support implementation for children's health and wellbeing in cities, we believe we must pool resources and energies from all actors in society including children themselves, politics, academia, industry, NGOs and healthcare.

To support the participation of delegates from low and middle-income countries and youth organizations with limited ability to otherwise attend, we are offering a limited number of scholarships, thanks to generous financing from Uppsala Monitoring Centre, and the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare. The scholarships cover costs for travel,  accommodation and the Summit fee, during Uppsala Health Summit's meeting Healthy Urban Childhoods, 7- 9 October, 2019.

Last day for application to reach Uppsala Health Summit is 24 April 2019.
