Tuesday, 14th of June, 6:00 – 7:30 pm (CEST), via Zoom

Second webinar of the Working Group on Tropical Medicine and Global Health Training of the Federation of European Societies for Tropical Medicine and International Health (FESTMIH).

Globally, an estimated 2.7 billion people are affected by neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). This webinar will focus on access to medicine (A2M) surrounding NTDs. We will explore the current state of A2M for NTDs, including the pharmaceutical sector setup, issues with donation programmes, factors contributing to poor access and affordability of medicines for NTDs, and promising developments in the lab and field for sustainable access. Expert speakers will present interesting cases and their current work in the area. The webinar will conclude with an open dialogue with the audience, to discuss future avenues for improving A2M for NTDs, through advocacy and new R&D, for example.
