WWARN to share latest research at ECTMIH 2021

2 September 2021

Join the WWARN team who will be presenting at the 12th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH) between 28 September to 1 October. ECTMIH provides a platform for experts, scientists and researchers to present scientific developments and breakthroughs in tropical medicine and global health, and strengthens networks and creates new partnerships.

WWARN will join IDDO colleagues to share some of our recent work on malaria, COVID-19 and visceral leishmaniasis (VL) during the virtual conference hosted from Bergen, Norway.

  • Dr Kasia Stepniewska will present a poster on her work in malaria titled, ‘Optimisation of single-dose primaquine used with artemisinin combination therapy for reduction of Plasmodium falciparum transmission: WWARN Individual Patient Data Meta-Analyses.
  • Dr Prabin Dahal will present his new paper Visceral Leishmaniasis in pregnancy and vertical transmission: A systematic literature review on the therapeutic orphans.
  • Dr Dahal will also be presenting two posters, the first is called ‘Methodological variations in design and conduct of visceral leishmaniasis clinical trials: A systematic review’ and the second is titled ‘Haemoglobin at inclusion in visceral leishmaniasis clinical studies: A systematic review and proposal for an individual patient data meta-analysis’. Find out more about our VL work here.
  • And Dr Alistair McLean will present a poster on his COVID-19 research, called ‘Characteristics of COVID-19 clinical trial registration investigating priority pharmacological treatments: a complex landscape’. Find out more about our COVID=19 work here.
