Ginia Taylor, MA, is Communications Intern for The Task Force for Global Health. Supported principally by grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID, the Neglected Tropical Diseases Support Center serves as Secretariat for the Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases, or COR-NTD.
This post describes discussions held at the annual meeting of the American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH), held November 13-17, 2016, in Atlanta, GA.
As we look back on COR-NTD 2016, we express our gratitude to one of our own who could not attend: Dr. Vasanthapuram “VK” Kumaraswami, who tragically died in a car accident on March 4, 2016, along with his wife Lakshmi and his mother Kamala.
The COR-NTD Secretariat looks forward to welcoming attendees to this year’s meeting of the Coalition for Operational Research on Neglected Tropical Diseases (COR-NTD) in Atlanta, Georgia.
