5th H3D Symposium

Dear SACI Member,

We are excited to announce that the 5th H3D Symposium will be held at the prestigious Radisson Blu Mosi-Oa-Tunya Livingstone Resort in Zambia, providing a captivating backdrop near the magnificent Victoria Falls on the banks of the Zambezi River. This symposium will focus on the theme “Emerging Treatments for Drug-Resistant Infections of Bacterial and Mycobacterial Origin,” addressing the pressing challenge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The symposium will offer face-to-face exposure to more than 150 local, regional, and international delegates from tertiary institutions and the pharmaceutical industry, scientists, and researchers with a specific interest in TB, AMR & NTDS from over 7 countries. With an innovative programme comprising instructional course lectures (ICLs), the latest research, keynote lectures, oral and rapid-fire sessions, debates, and posters, the symposium aims to foster interaction between high-profile, distinguished international scientists and diverse participants, including postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows. 

A limited number of travel bursaries are available for qualifying students and postdoctoral researchers. Please submit your research abstracts before 31 January 2024.
