Against the backdrop of the newly launched SDGs, ISNTD Coinfections brings together experts in NTDs, other diseases and associated conditions of poverty - including HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria - who will be addressing the latest developments in these fields and their impact on NTD control with a view to effectively impacting poverty and development in the long-run.
The aim is to improve the delivery of healthcare and poverty alleviation among the most vulnerable by integrating resources across research, funding and advocacy with a focus on disease prevention and cure programmes.
Emphasis will be placed on strongly developing the interconnect between disciplines to foster new approaches and partnerships to NTD- 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.
