This conference focuses on the exacerbated strain imposed by coinfection on an organism but also, in a broader sense, on healthcare systems and seeks to mobilise resources across diseases, regions and sectors to improve healthcare provision in terms of quality, access and cost. By addressing coinfection as a state in its own right, the conference seeks to move towards real gains in health and life experiences by being patient-focused rather than disease focused.
Discussions will be centered the lessons learned from coinfection by several NTDs and by NTDs and other diseases including TB, HIV and malaria, and will stem from four sessions looking at the following issues:
Session 1 Coinfections: dynamics for the future of the global health agenda
Session 2 Nutrition, NTDs & conditions of poverty
Session 3 Coinfections to collaborations: NTDs & the 'big 3’
Session 4 NTDs, disability & mental health
