Posted by Kimberley Meijers on December 5, 2016 at 8:21 pm



Scientific excellence

The main objective of ECTMIH2017 is to provide a platform for state-of-the-art updates and recent breakthroughs in the field of tropical medicine and global health. Plenaries, scientific sessions and symposia will deal with a broad range of biomedical, clinical and epidemiological updates. Global infectious diseases (malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS) as well as tropical and poverty-related health problems will be put in the spotlight. Strategies for control, elimination or eradication of communicable diseases will be reviewed, from epidemic responsiveness to integration in sustainable health systems. Non-communicable diseases, the organisation and financing of health systems and a wide range of other global health issues will be on the agenda. Cross-cutting themes will include diagnostic innovation, drug resistance and development, global research ethics and the role of social sciences in international health research.

Societal relevance

ECTMIH2017 will translate scientific progress in societal impact, and promote evidence-based practices and policies, especially for poor and neglected communities. In addition, it will be a forum for reflection on the role and position of tropical medicine, global health and international cooperation in the 21st century, taking into consideration disruptive changes such as human migration, environmental evolution, technological innovation and political power shifts. Critical input will be ensured by a strong representation from the South, global thinkers, policy and decision makers. The meeting will also include debates on the role of cooperation agencies as well as of scientific institutes in the field of global health.

Cultural enrichment

ECTMIH2017 will offer the participants a thrilling social, cultural and culinary sample of Antwerp, one of the most vibrant cities in Europe. Other cultural capitals as Brussels, Ghent, Bruges, Amsterdam, Paris, London, Maastricht, Aachen, and Cologne are easily reached by fast trains. The airports in Brussels and Antwerp are 30 minutes or less away and the conference venue is on the doorstep of Antwerp’s central train and bus stations. The Elisabeth Centre is a brand new conference venue integrating fabulous 19th century architecture in technologically advanced design, with direct and free access to the wonderful city zoo of Antwerp. The city’s main shopping streets, museums, monuments, vista’s, hotels, restaurants and cafés are all within a short walking distance.
