Re: Final reminder! ISNTD Water 2015: WASH, global health & urbanisation (International Society for Neglected Tropical Diseases), 30 Sept., London, UK

I just wanted to point out that last year's conference organised by the same organisation (International Society for Neglected Tropical Diseases) has a very nice website where videos of the presentations are available:

forum.susana.org/forum/categories/159-ne...-with-feedback#11256

Or direct link:

I wish all conferences had such good websites for people to benefit even if they couldn't make it to the conference. And it's good to see how people from the health sector (on neglected tropical diseases) came together with people from the WASH sector.

People living in countries where Youtube is banned (e.g. Mughal in Pakistan) will appreciate that the videos are uploaded to Vimeo so you can view them.

I liked this one of Carl Hensman (BMGF) where he showed a video about pit emptying in Kenya (will make a separate post about it in the FSM section):
