Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission deadline has passed.

Abstract submissions are invited for Reproductive Health 2012. This clinical conference combines the latest bench, clinical, and social science research with interactive, hands-on training and offers take home points for immediate practice improvement. ARHP’s organizational goal is to translate science into practice to create positive change, and encourages submissions of translational research in reproductive health, including studies that feature behavioral and social science.

Abstracts submitted that demonstrate high quality research practices and relevancy to the meeting's learning outcomes will be selected by an expert review panel for poster presentation at the meeting. All abstracts accepted for poster presentation at Reproductive Health 2012 will be published in the January 2013 issue of Contraception, An International Reproductive Health Journal.

Abstract Selection

  • Abstracts submitted should relate to the definition of reproductive health, and the content covered in the meeting agenda.
  • Objectives of the research presented in the abstract should be clear and consistent with the principles and methods of reproductive health care practice. Researchers must demonstrate that rigorous scientific methods and appropriate program planning and means of evaluation were employed.
