10th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH 2017)
Antwerp, 16-20 October 2017, 10th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health. "ECTMIH brings together scientists and experts from Europe and from all over the world, including many delegates from low and middle income countries. This biennial event is patronised by FESTMIH, the Federation of European Societies of Tropical Medicine and International Health. In 2017, the Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) and the Belgian Platform for International Health (Be-Cause Health) will join hands with FESTMIH for the festive 10th edition. Building on the successes of previous meetings, it will consolidate ECTMIH's standing as Europe's leading conference and networking event in its field. The splendid venue of the newly opened Elisabeth congress centre features historical buildings, state of the art technology and the fabulous Antwerp Zoo as break-out garden. Situated at the doorstep of the iconic Central Station, it gives direct access to the rich cultural, historical and gastronomic heritage of Antwerp." (Source: ECTMIH website).
