Recap: 6th Global Scabies meeting, Baltimore

April 17, 2018 at 6:22 PM

We were thrilled at the participation and outcomes from the 6th global meeting, held in Baltimore on November 5, 2017. A brief summary of the report can be found on the IACS Website Member's page.

Fifty-one participants, including representation from WHO and many endemic countries attended the meeting, and engaged in robust discussion following a series of excellent presentations.

We hope to share presentations on the website shortly. Actions from the meeting have led to increased engagement with WHO headquarters and regional offices toward development of global scabies control guidelines and will inform the agenda for the 2018 meeting.
