ASTMH (American Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene) Annual Meeting

15th to 19th November 2020, Toronto, Canada.


The ASTMH Annual Meeting is the premier forum for the exchange of scientific advances in tropical medicine/global health and hygieneThe meeting draws tropical medicine and global health professionals representing academia, foundations, government, not for profit organizations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, military and private practice

The meeting is designed for researchers, professors, government and public health officials, military personnel, travel clinic physicians, practicing physicians in tropical medicine, students and all healthcare providers working in the fields of tropical medicine, hygiene and global health.

The Annual Meeting is a five-day educational conference that includes four pre-meeting courses and draws approximately 4,900 attendees.

The society is actively exploring options and developing alternative plans should a change in the Annual Meeting be warranted. All updates about the Annual Meeting will be shared in a timely manner via our website, directly through email messages and with posts on Twitter and Facebook.

“As the Society’s Scientific Program Chair, everyone is asking me, ‘Are you cancelling the meeting this year?’ My answer is that ASTMH is not about a meeting, but rather a scientific community that shares critical information and works to translate it into better health around the globe,” said Daniel G. Bausch, MD, MPH&TM, FASTMH. “That process is more important than ever in the COVID-19 era. This appears to be recognized by our membership as well. Despite the uncertainty, abstract submissions for the 2020 Annual Meeting were about 80% of previous years. 
“So, there will be a meeting, with special sessions on COVID-19 and planetary health, among others. We hope it will be in-person, but we’re working on contingency plans for pre-recorded and livestream options, if needed. I can’t tell you whether you’ll be seated in a conference room in Toronto or at home behind your computer, but either way, keep ASTMH Meeting, November 15-19 on your calendars.”
