To ensure the high levels of participation and engagement we had last year in Dakar, we will again be calling for workshop proposals, and have secured space for twenty workshops over the first two days of the meeting. The third day of the meeting will be dedicated to disease-specific and cross-cutting groups.

The workshop submissions are now CLOSED and all proposals are being considered.


- Successful workshop proposals will be notified by email by Thursday 21 June 2018.

- Successful workshop organisers are requested to ensure final details of workshop sessions are finalized by Friday 3rd August 2018.

- Successful workshop organisers are requested to ensure notes of workshop sessions are finalized by Friday 28th September 2018.



A more detailed Agenda will be provided closer to the meeting.

Election of a Vice Chair

Field Visit to an NTD programme

Based on your feedback from last year’s conference, as well as the opportunity of being in a country for the conference where so many of our members are doing excellent work, the Ethiopian Ministry of Health is looking into options for a field visit programme either side of the conference. More details will be shared  with you.
