JAGntd continuous webinar spin-off project (2) "NTDs in the Pacific region" registration started

JAGntd continuous webinar spin-off project (2) Registration for participation in "NTDs in the Pacific region" has started. In the continuous webinar held in 2020, we took up 6 diseases and introduced the countermeasure strategy drawn by WHO and the experience and contribution of Japan. This time, as a spin-off project, we will focus on the current state of NTDs in the Pacific region. Understanding NTDs in this region, which has a strong geopolitical relationship with Japan, will provide important implications for considering Japan's NTDs policy. Diseases not covered in the main part of the webinar are also introduced as specific examples of countermeasures.

Date and time: Tuesday, July 20, 2021 12: 30-14: 00 (Japan time)
