Following the TES Conference 2017 (the first conference on Schistosomiasis organized in Cameroon, entitled “Towards Elimination of Schistosomiasis: a paradigm shift”), the “Schistosomiasis and STH Week” is a special wider event organized to celebrate the achievements of schistosomiasis and STH research and control in Cameroon. It’s an opportunity to pave the way towards the elimination of these neglected tropical diseases.
