The 10th European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH) will take place in Antwerp, Belgium from October 16th to 20th, 2017. FESTMIH is patron of the event, and since the foundation of the Federation in 1995, consecutive ECTMIH conferences have been organised by the national societies in collaboration with 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) joins hands with FESTMIH for the festive 10th edition. 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.
