XX International Symposium on Neglected Diseases


Mundo Sano Foundation announces the “XX International Symposium on Neglected Diseases”, to be held on November 2-4, 2021.

In the COVID-19 pandemic context, this twentieth edition of the Symposium will be held online; leading national and international figures will be present, who will address the real situation of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) from the perspectives of international cooperation and health-oriented research, in line with the new Road map for World Health Organization (WHO) NTD 2021-2030.

The current crisis driven by the novel coronavirus has shown the importance of not neglecting the NTDs; this group of 20 diseases affect more than one million people, mainly vulnerable populations, and thrive in areas with poor access to quality health services, clean water and sanitation.

At a time when everything is being rethought, the Symposium will also provide a space for putting forward strategies and proposals to measure the real impact of public policies.
