Dear colleagues,

I would like to share a reminder for the section's call for abstracts for the EPH Conference in Lisbon later this year.

Reminder: Call for Abstracts - 2024 EPH Conference in Lisbon

The EUPHA section on Sexual & Gender Minority Health would like to encourage all members to submit new and relevant work on LGBTQI+ health as abstracts for the EPH Conference in Lisbon (November 2024) to the section leadership, prior to the general submission deadline.

As in previous years, the section aims to draft several workshop proposals (including 4-5 individual presentations) focusing on sexual and gender minority health (SGMH) and submit these proposals on behalf of the section. If you are interested in joining a section-initiated workshop proposal, you are invited to send an abstract to the section leadership first. The section’s steering group will then review and organize the abstracts into thematic draft proposals. More information about abstract formatting and general submission can be found on the European Public Health Conference website:

All contributions that are related to SGMH are welcomed. We further encourage, but do not limit to, abstracts of work that are related to the following themes:

  • Co-creation and community participation in SGMH research, including methodology and practical approaches
  • Underrepresented groups in SGMH research, including asexual and intersex individuals
  • Intersectional approaches to LGBTQI+ health
  • Structural climates and LGBTQI+ health
  • Intracommunity stress – within-group discrimination and stress
  • Gender-affirming health care and rapidly changing political climates
  • Resiliency & LGBTQI+ health prevention and promotion
  • SOGIE status and neurodiversity

We also especially encourage local (i.e., Lisbon-based) and community-led initiatives and research projects to submit abstracts.

Please send your abstract to Dr. Van der Star (avanderstar [@] and Dr. Lovro Markovic (lovro.markovic [@] by March 31st, 2024

NB: If you decide to send your abstract to the section, please do not also submit the abstract using the official submission system of the EPH Conference. We will notify you whether your abstract is selected as part of a workshop proposal ahead of time. In this way, there will be ample time to submit your contribution as an individual abstract before May 1st.  All proposed workshops as well as all individual abstracts will have to be scored by the EPH International Scientific Committee before a decision will be made on whether contributions are accepted as part of the conference program.

Best regards,

Arjan van der Star, Ph.D., M.Sc.
Section President
