The COMSTECH and the NTD NETWORK have joined forces to produce a virtual lecture programme, launched June 2021, and covering the skills needed for research into Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). These live webinars are aimed at academics, professional scientists and interested members of the general public. See this page for a list of all our talks, and links to YouTube recordings.
Our blog pages (see link below each title) provide further details on each talk and our speakers, again with a link to the webinar recording.
If you are a specialist in Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and would like to enhance their knowledge, skills, and academic connections, please register with us for updates. Participants from Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states are particularly encouraged to register to attend the live events.
