11th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health 2019 (ECTMIH)
16/09/2019 / Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool (ACC Liverpool), UK
Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (RSTMH) 2019 has specific significance for the tropical medicine community, as it will mark the 25th anniversary of FESTMIH, of which RSTMH is a proud member. This will form a great opportunity to reflect on how much progress has been made in the last quarter of a century in terms of investigation, innovation and implementation, and is a chance to consider what we can expect from the next 25 years for tropical medicine and global health. The challenges of these enormous fields of work continue to test us and an ever-wider network of scientists and professionals is needed to tackle the risks to human health, as well as the interactions between human and animal health, the environment, population movement, and economic, social and political change.
