We are pleased to announce that the RSTMH Annual Meeting will be part of the European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH 2019).

This is a great opportunity to be part of a wider event bringing together 1,500 scientists and experts from across the world.

The Congress provides a platform for sharing research and innovation and acts as a forum for reflection on the role of tropical medicine and global health.

Our Annual Meeting will examine the changing world from a One Health perspective. Two major themes of surveillance and delivery of healthcare will be considered through the cross-cutting lenses of economics, social sciences and technology.

As always, this event provides an opportunity for RSTMH members and supporters to come together and network. It will include the RSTMH medals and awards ceremony, we will be presenting six awards including the Sir Patrick Manson Medal, we will also announce our President-elect and Vice-President.

We aim to end the meeting with a clearer steer towards what RSTMH should be focusing on operationally and strategically in this space, as one of our priority areas.

Delegates will:

  • Explore themes of surveillance and healthcare delivery with a range of speakers and through group discussions.
  • Feed in to a panel developing ideas, views and evidence for RSTMH to take forward in the coming year.
  • Hear turbo talks on exciting areas in the One Health field.
  • Explore how to use behavioural insights and nudge theory to promote diversity in the One Health approach.
  • View posters and network with colleagues from around the world at an RSTMH reception on 17 September.
