The call for abstract submissions for the European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health 2019 (ECTMIH) is open.

Under the theme of 25 years: investigation, innovation and implementation, ECTMIH 2019 will be a platform for showcasing and discussing research and progress in tropical medicine and global health in the twenty-first century.

It will include NTDs, malaria, HIV, TB and non-communicable diseases. We’ll look at prevention and treatment, in the context of underlying health systems and impactful external factors. It will be an excellent occasion for early career researchers, community and allied health workers and implementers to develop their knowledge and networks. It will also be an opportunity to showcase public-private partnerships.

The event is a chance to network with over 1,500 scientists and experts from across the world.
