Introduction

The ISNTD Festival brings together communication, arts, entertainment and science to help complex public health messages reach patients, the public and global health professionals worldwide. Welcome to the seventh annual ISNTD Festival!

The aim of our ISNTD Festival has always been to explore the black box between the end of operational research and actual change, whether that change is at policy level or indeed at community level. This change in mindsets, behavior and ultimately policy is inevitable but it's up to us as a community to direct that change.
