ECLIPSE researchers will convene a 2-hour research seminar at the Centre for Research on Culture and Gender (CRCG) - free lunch upon registration!

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a skin condition caused by infection with a microscopic parasite (Leishmania spp.) which results in the development of skin lesions which heal slowly and are difficult to treat.

ECLIPSE researchers will convene a 2-hour research seminar at the Centre for Research on Culture and Gender (CRCG) which will consist of a series of short presentations on different aspects of the ECLIPSE programme, and will introduce discussion topics, including:

  • The patient journey for people with CL: a perspective from 3 continents
  • Is CL a stigmatizing disease and who is affected most: an intersectional approach
  • Community engagement and involvement in a CL programme: effective, decolonial and inclusive community engagement amplifying local knowledge
  • Interdisciplinary research: how do we foster and further develop interdisciplinary insights on cutaneous leishmaniasis?
