Welcome to NTDASIA2019

Welcome to the 5th Asian Neglected Tropical Diseases Conference (NTDASIA2019).

The Meeting theme this year, “International Research Network” will highlight international cooperation to tackle NTDs based on evidence-based research. The NTDASIA2019 scientific program will foster discussion and hopes to inspire participants from a wide array of themes to initiate collaborations within and across disciplines for the advancement of our field.

The various thematic sessions will showcase important scientific advances and highlight impacts of NTDs and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in a world of fast changes and complex interactions. The conference program will cover a large range of tropical diseases, especially those endemic to Asia including dengue, helminthic infections; bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic diseases.
