Webinar | Disease management, disability and inclusion: Why people-centred research is needed to beat NTDs

26 May 2021 14:00 BST

A research webinar discussing the epidemiology and burden of the neglected co-morbidities associated with NTDs and how some groups are transitioning from theory to practice by taking a whole person approach to NTDs control, elimination, eradication and morbidity management.

This LCNTDR & RSTMH webinar will cover the epidemiology and impact of NTD co-morbidities, emphasising the underestimation of the current burden of NTDs when mental health conditions are not taken into account, and will discuss how programmes in countries with endemic NTDs are putting theory into practice in NTD programmes by taking people-centred approaches.

Moderated by Julian Eaton, (Centre for Global Mental Health, LSHTM and MH Director, CBM Global) and confirmed speakers including:
Prof. David Molyneux CMG (Emeritus Professor LSTM)
Freddie Bailey (Epidemiology and Information Analyst, Public Health England)
Dr Paul Tsaku (Research Advisor, The Leprosy Mission Nigeria)
Dr Laura Dean (LSTM, Research Director REDRESS).
