Next week the 9th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health will meet in Basel, Switzerland. We are delighted that our team member Margaret Gyapong will be there representing COUNTDOWN.
Margaret will speak in a satellite session on co-infections and their impact on Neglected Tropical Diseases. Panellists in this session will talk about female genital schistosomiasis and health systems, the association of the schistosome infection with inflammatory response profiles and the challenges of co-infections, in particular Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) and HIV.
If you are going to the conference do pop along and give Margaret your support. The satellite is on Monday 7 September from 12:15 to 13:15 in the Sydney Meeting Room.
We look forward to reading your tweets!
