Please note that the HPRC principles of funding do not allow us to work with, or for, the tobacco, alcohol or arms industries, gambling or pharma. Partnerships or sponsorship will not be considered appropriate where there is a fundamental mismatch of goals and objectives with those of the HPRC. This extends to the funding of activity presented at our annual Health Promotion conference. 

If your work has been funded by any of these industries, please do not submit an abstract as it will be rejected.
