Scientific Advisory Committee

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) advises on technical and research activities of the theme. Appointed from across the schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiases (STHs) and broader scientific research community, SAC members have significant expertise in research, policy and funding. The SAC for schistosomiasis & STHs enriches and informs the work of the research theme by providing independent scientific expertise, guidance and support to IDDO Senior Management and the IDDO Board. The SAC reviews the research activities and makes recommendations on scientific priorities, activity gaps, and opportunities. The SAC raises awareness of relevant advances in scientific research and global health, and provides feedback and perspectives from wider stakeholders in the scientific community in areas of relevance to the schistosomiasis & STHs research theme.
