More than 4,000 tropical medicine and global health professionals from academia, government, non-profits, and the private sector will come together November 13–17 in Atlanta, GA, for the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH).
RTI at ASTMH
RTI global health staff attending ASTMH will contribute to 27 presentations related to neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), malaria, and disease elimination. The RTI-led ENVISION project—the U.S. Agency for International Development’s flagship NTDs initiative—will be represented in more than 20 symposia and poster sessions.
Stop by Booth 210 to meet our team and learn how RTI is making an impact around the world. If you would like to prearrange a meeting, please contact us.
While ASTMH is underway in Atlanta, RTI will also be exhibiting and presenting at the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Vancouver, Canada. Learn more about our presence at HSR here.
“RTI’s significant contributions to these two events demonstrate not only our thought leadership across diverse global health areas, but also our commitment to building bridges across sectors,” said Richard Reithinger, Vice President, Global Health Division. “Global health progress depends on our ability to reach across disease and sector siloes, and discover new ways to collaborate and learn from each other, in order to leverage resources for maximum impact.”
