Highlights from ECTMIH 2019

We hope you enjoyed this year’s 11th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health, ECTMIH 2019, as much as we did.

As always, the conference was a great opportunity to catch up with national and international colleagues and partners, make new friends and exchange ideas.

During the week, IDDO’s team was involved in oral and poster sessions on visceral leishmaniasis (VL), malaria, scrub typhus and data re-use. We also had a lot of interest and made new connections in our work across schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiases (STHs).

If you missed the posters, you can catch up with them here.

Our posters included:

The WWARN clinical trials publication library: a systematically constructed database of plasmodium clinical efficacy trials, poster presented by Junko Takata

Efficacy and safety of artemisinin-based and quinine-based treatments for uncomplicated falciparum malaria during pregnancy: a WWARN individual patient data meta-analysis

A systematic review of scrub typhus study landscape: protocol and preliminary literature search results
