Symposium outline (draft)
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) that afflict the world's poor. This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) announces a new roadmap for NTDs countermeasures, setting the direction for 2030. At this symposium, organizations related to NTDs countermeasures in Japan will be gathered from industry, academia, government and the private sector to discuss Japan's NTDs strategy for the next 10 years. We will discuss with the panelists and everyone who comes to the venue what each organization can do to make the contribution from Japan more effective, and what should be done to deepen the collaboration between industry, academia, government and the private sector.
