Dear Friends and Colleagues

On behalf of the organizers and the scientific committee, we are happy to invite you to the 10th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH) in Antwerp, Belgium from October 16th to 20th, 2017.


ECTMIH brings together scientists and experts from Europe and from all over the world, including many delegates from low and middle income countries. This biennial event is patronised by FESTMIH, the Federation of European Societies of Tropical Medicine and International Health. Since the foundation of FESTMIH in 1995, consecutive ECTMIH conferences have been organised by the national societies and/or institutes of Germany (Hamburg 1995), UK (Liverpool 1998), Portugal (Lisbon 2002), France (Marseille 2005), the Netherlands (Amsterdam 2007), Italy (Verona 2009), Spain (Barcelona 2011), Denmark (Copenhagen 2013) and Switzerland (Basel 2015).

In 2017, the Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) and the Belgian Platform for International Health (Be-Cause Health) will join hands with FESTMIH for the festive 10th edition. Building on the successes of previous meetings, it will consolidate ECTMIH's standing as Europe's leading conference and networking event in its field. The splendid venue of the newly opened Elisabeth congress centre features historical buildings, state of the art technology and the fabulous Antwerp Zoo as break-out garden. Situated at the doorstep of the iconic Central Station, it gives direct access to the rich cultural, historical and gastronomic heritage of Antwerp.

Hoping to see you in Antwerp at ECTMIH2017 and with best regards,

Bruno Gryseels, Director of ITM and Conference Chair
Karel Gyselinck, Chair of Be-Cause Health and FESTMIH representative
Anne Buvé, Chair of the Scientific Committee
