Research to Implementation: A Call for Global Action

The First International Podoconiosis Conference will take place on Sunday 23rd September, 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Brighton & Sussex Centre for Global Health Research and Footwork are delighted to unite with local NGO and University partners and the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health to host this conference.

As the country bearing the highest burden of podoconiosis globally as well as the one with the most advanced research and implementation, Ethiopia is the ideal setting for this conference.

The theme for this event is Research to Implementation: A Call for Global Action’. We are calling for abstracts from all those involved in podoconiosis research and implementation. The conference programme will include two sessions of research presentations, one of implementation presentations, and a poster display area. 

The conference will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel, Addis Ababa. Accommodation is available there and at a number of other hotels within easy walking distance.

The First International Podoconiosis Conference has been timed to precede the Neglected Tropical Disease NGO Network (NNN) conference, and the two conferences will be united through a joint Welcome Reception on Sunday evening.

We are advised that issuing visas is likely to require at least fourweeks, so we strongly encourage that you book early. Registration has now closed.

We look forward to welcoming you to this ground-breaking conference.
