ISNTD Coinfections brings together experts in NTDs and other diseases - including HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria - who will be addressing the latest developments in these fields and their impact on NTD control.
The aim is to improve the delivery of healthcare in NTD afflicted countries by integrating disease prevention and cure programmes across diseases.
Emphasis will be placed on strongly developing the interconnect between disciplines to foster new approaches and partnerships to NTD alleviation and poverty reduction.
By addressing coinfection as a state in its own right, we want to move towards real gains in health and life experiences by being patient-focused rather than disease focused.
