Refreshments Wine, bottled beer, & soft drinks will be served

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) have been included within the Health Targets of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, recognizing their impact as impediments to health of the poorest 1-2 billion... The elimination “end game” and eradication defined as “zero global incidence of infection” poses a unique challenge, i.e. how do we prove a negative? This target must be achieved in remote, conflict affected and geographically difficult regions with limited health services and communication. This talk will discuss the success to date, the research required to address the challenges and the current global health policy environment.
