The 2nd International Conference on Global Challenges in Neglected Tropical Diseases aims to bring together researchers and other participants from different world regions, where these diseases are prevalent, to interact with colleagues from North, South, Central America and the Caribbean Basin for discussion and knowledge exchange about new approaches for combating these diseases through treatment and prevention. The conference seeks elevating awareness of neglected tropical diseases, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean. The conference will feature spaces for one to one meetings between participants throughout the three days of the event to stimulate collaboration and knowledge exchange between laboratories in the Americas and other parts of the world.
