Challenges in Disease Elimination abstract deadline 1st June
RSTMH are very excited about our Challenges in Disease Elimination meeting. You may be aware that this is now a five-day meeting, incorporating the Challenges in Malaria Research meeting previously run by BioMed Central. We have chosen the over-arching theme of disease elimination for this year’s meeting; informed by the outcomes of our policy-focussed meeting in September 2015, we will cover a range of diseases including leprosy, yaws, trachoma, polio, neo-natal mortality and still-birth, with a focus solely on malaria on days 4 and 5.
