Conference Programme

The overall theme for the conference is ‘Research to Implementation: A Call for Global Action’.

The day will offer a mix of keynote speakers, plenary sessions, presentations and panel discussions.

Presentation sessions will explore areas of podoconiosis research from aetiology and distribution through disease consequences, prevention and treatment. Those implementing programmes will have the opportunity to share experience and develop partnerships.

The conference will close with the launch of a Declaration to affirm global commitment to eliminating podoconiosis within our lifetimes.

The day will end with a joint Welcome Reception co-hosted by Footwork and The Neglected Tropical Disease NGO Network (NNN) whose conference starts the following day.

Below you can see a draft timetable. Will be updating it as we confirm speakers and presentations.
