Knowledge centres, non-profit organisations and professional networks across Europe and further afield collaborate to launch ECTMIH 2023 scientific programme

We are delighted to announce early details of over 20 headline sessions organised by our ECTMIH 2023 partners and their collaborators across the globe. Wide-ranging topics and cross-cutting themes in these partner-organised sessions include planetary health, the EU global strategy, Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) elimination, refugee and migrant health advocacy, and specialist training in resource-poor settings. These will provide a comprehensive and stimulating framework for four days of debate and discussion at Congress in November.

Chair and Vice-Chair Rick Grobbee and Joyce Browne said “We were extremely impressed by the innovative thinking in so many of the submissions we received from our partners, and we are thrilled to have such an exciting framework of excellent programme content lined up, thanks to their contributions.”

Full details of partner sessions, including interviews with the organisers, will be released over the coming weeks. 

In the meantime, here's a summary of those headline sessions, with hyperlinks to interviews, here:
