Coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID-19, has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. There are now more than 27,500,000 cases in 210 countries/territories [as of 8 September 2020].

We are still planning to host the NNN Conference 2020, however, the event will be virtual. Please see the Conference Agenda page for more information and to register.

Although the conference will not occur in Nepal this year as planned, we would very much like to thank our local hosts for 2020, The Leprosy Mission Nepal, for their fantastic advice and support and look forward to working with them again next year. We would also like to thank the Yak and Yeti, our hotel partners in Kathmandu, Nepal, who have been very flexible and understanding with regards to moving our face-to-face conference to September 2021.
