The ASTMH Annual Meeting is the premier forum for the exchange of scientific advances in tropical medicine/global health and hygiene. The meeting draws more than 4,800 attendees.

The 2020 Annual Meeting is proceeding as planned. We are actively monitoring the global situation regarding the spread of COVID-19.  We are aware of the risks of large gatherings, especially those that attract attendees from around the world such as our meeting. We are actively exploring options and developing alternative plans should a change in the Annual Meeting be warranted. All updates will be shared in a timely manner via our website, directly through email messages and posts to Twitter and Facebook. Visit our COVID-19 resources page for resources and helpful links.
