Connecting the Dots

Connecting the Dots

Antwerp, 9-10 October 2019, 60th ITM Colloquium. "ITM colloquia bring together experts from all continents to discuss the most pressing scientific questions in tropical medicine and international health. The 60th edition will build on this tradition by addressing the current challenges of global health, with a specific focus on migration, climate change and technological innovation.

One planet: Climate change, increasing population pressures, environmental degradation and loss of biodiversity affect more places and people than ever before

One health: The pressure on our planet is affecting food production and land use, but also human and animal disease patterns, adding to the challenges for health systems, programmes and services.

One future: Policy makers, researchers and health professionals face unprecedented challenges, while technology promises plenty of new opportunities. If used wisely these might be strong allies towards achieving health for all."
