Health systems are facing many challenges globally. Some, like COVID-19, receive massive attention from media, research institutes and policy makers, while other diseases which have been around for centuries remain neglected. One of these is noma and we believe it's possible to tackle it by increasing awareness.

Join an evening that will shed light on noma disease. The award-winning documentary film ”Restoring Dignity” will be screened, followed by a panel discussion with international guest speakers.

Date: 15 November 2022 

Time: Doors & mingle with light snack 17:30, start 18:00

Venue: Karolina Widerströmsalen, Svenska Läkaresällskapet 

Address: Klara Östra Kyrkogata 10, 101 35 Stockholm. 

More information can be found here.

Please join us in a global effort to tackle the neglect, to raise awareness of noma and to advocate for its addition to the WHO’s Neglected Tropical Diseases list.
