About the event

  • Location: Yokohama, Japan
  • Date: 28 – 30 August 2019

We’re delighted that, from 28 – 30 August, we’ll be at TICAD 7. We’ll be joined by heads of state, NGOs, international organisations and representatives from both the private sector and civil society.

The Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) is an international conference led by the Japanese government. It is the largest international conference held in Japan and is co-sponsered by the United Nations, the United Nations Development Programme, the African Union Commission and the World Bank.

At TICAD 7 we’ll be working with the Japanese Government, the Global Health Innovation Technology Fund (GHIT), and the Japan Alliance on Global Neglected Tropical Diseases (JAGntd), to deliver an event where Japan and Africa will call for the elimination of NTDs in Africa.

The event will enhance the contribution toward the elimination of NTDs in Africa by gathering Japanese technology, knowledge and experience.
