Please note, in order to view the live Q&A, you will need to register.


It aims to bring together those who are motivated to improve the healthcare of those living in low resource settings and who enjoy sharing their projects and collaborating with others. 

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are modifying our plans and creating an online event. We are inviting abstracts for review and, if approved, authors will then be invited to record a short video presentation.

These presentations will be made available to an international audience on Friday 11 September 2020 along with the presentations of keynote speakers.

A live question and answer session will take place on Friday 18 September (time to be confirmed) so authors will need to be available on this date. We greatly look forward to welcoming you to our AHT2020 webinar  



Presentations are now available online.
