The said competition will focus on the presentation of successfully completed health research studies with aims of exercising and cultivating researchers’ presentation, and research communication skills as a way of sharing evidence to stakeholders and policymakers.

For this year's event, we will be able to witness 12 policy pitches of competitors who were nominated by their respective regional health research and development consortia. Competitors will present their completed research in a three-minute, one-slide presentation for a non-specialist audience based on set criteria. Towards the end of the program, the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite competitor through a poll. The competitor who will garner the highest number of votes will get the People's Choice Award.
