Kaagapay sa Pagsugpo ng Dengue
The Novartis Institute of Tropical Diseases (NITD) aims to discover novel treatments and preventive methods for major tropical diseases. For dengue, its research focuses on developing cost-effective medicines that reduce dengue infections and deaths, particularly in developing countries like the Philippines.
To step up the global battle against dengue, Novartis is hosting the 1st NITD International Dengue Symposium at the Edsa Shangri-la Hotel on August 31 to September 4, 2009.
The dengue symposium aims to promote information exchange and collaboration between and among Novartis, international and Filipino scientists and researchers, the Philippine government and local professional medical societies. Its ultimate goal is the development of life-saving anti-dengue treatments.
