American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) hosted its 71st Annual Meeting from October 30 through November 3, 2022. This year’s meeting was hybrid, with sessions held in Seattle, Washington and live-streamed for those who could not attend in person. CHAMPS was thrilled to be joining both in person and virtually from around the globe!
Staff and partners from the CHAMPS network presented 29 abstracts at this year’s meeting, covering topics from capturing home births when conducting Minimally Invasive Tissue Sampling (MITS); COVID-19 vaccine availability, accessibility, and hesitancy; and assessments of neural tube defects and other congenital birth defects.
