What should your submission accomplish?
- Critically examine health and development aid practices that prioritize donor-driven, technical approaches

- Connect the experiences of health care workers in aid-recipient countries with students and young professionals in donor countries
- Give voice to the perspectives of those who are often left out of the dialogue about global health aid
