In December 2020 we ran our first webinar looking at the modelling predictions to evaluate the potential impact of COVID-19 related interruptions to seven neglected tropical diseases programmes. This webinar will look at current NTD programmes in African countries to see how they have been affected and how they have adjusted the programmes to respond to the pandemic. This webinar will also discuss opportunities on how modelling can be used to best support programmes.
Deirdre Hollingsworth, leader of the NTD Modelling Consortium will chair our panellists in a discussion including Q&A from the audience.
