April 4th to 6th, 2016  LSTM  and its Filarial Programmes Support Unit  will be hosting a workshop for the NNN  organisation.   Experts in many of the neglected tropical diseases will gather in Liverpool to discuss current crosscutting issues that affect patient care programs for diseases such as lymphatic filariasis, leprosy, trachoma, podoconiosis, Buruli Ulcer  and others.  

The subjects that will be covered include indicators of success, ways of bringing care for all of these diseases together in the field, the identification and location of NTD  patients  and approaches to ensuring that care is care available to them.  This meeting  will also prepare for the major NNN  meeting to be held in Washington, USA  later this year.
