Chemonics at the American Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (ASTMH) Annual Meeting in Seattle, October 30-November 3, 2022
The American Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (ASTMH) annual meeting is the premier international forum for exchanging scientific advances in tropical medicine, hygiene, and global health. It draws health professionals from the development community, government, private sector, academia, and others from around the globe.
This year, our team of Chemonics professionals joined in the first ASTMH in-person meetings since 2019. Our staff share experiences advances and innovations from our latest work in malaria, HIV, and supply chain work in Mozambique, Benin, and Ethiopia through oral and poster presentations (see list below). We also joined the global health community in attending the annual meeting’s plenary sessions, symposia and scientific sessions, oral and poster presentations, and viewed at the exhibit hall.
Chemonics builds capacity and enables stakeholders at all levels of the health system to design, plan, implement, and monitor evidence-driven activities to strengthen health systems. We contribute to prevention, control and elimination through innovative and proven approaches that prevent, detect, and treat malaria infections, and prevent malaria-related deaths in the countries where we work. We develop strategic local and international partnerships, invest in health and information systems and establish a culture of data use to strengthen institutions and communities to implement and scale up high-impact vector control, drug-based prevention, social and behavioral change (SBC), malaria diagnostics, and case management. Our interventions have been reaching the most marginalized and underserved populations. Our programs work to ensure local governments have the data, tools, information, health workforce, financing, and high-impact, evidence-based service delivery models needed to attain and effectively sustain the HIV response. We improve access to high-quality health products worldwide and employ cutting-edge technologies and industry best practices to make global health supply chains more efficient and reach more people to ensure strong supply chain management.
