The London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research and the Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases present a one-day research meeting in May 2013 on NTD mapping and surveillance: supporting country programmes and future research directions.
The London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research (LCNTDR), which was launched in January 2013 as a collaboration between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the Natural History Museum and Imperial College London, brings together leading experts in neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) to build the evidence base around the design, implementation and evaluation of NTD control and elimination programmes. Building on that collaborative spirit, on 28 May 2013, LCNTDR and the Centre for Neglected Tropical Diseases (CNTD) at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine will co-host a research meeting in LSHTM centred on supporting country NTD programmes:
NTD mapping and surveillance: supporting country programmes and future research directions
The aim of the one-day meeting is to bring together researchers to present and discuss current research on the spatial epidemiology of NTDs and how this work is supporting country NTD programmes. Further to this, the meeting also aims to identify new frontiers of research.
