On behalf of the WorldLeish Committee, it is a great pleasure and privilege to invite you to the WorldLeish-6 Congress to be held in Toledo, Spain, from 16 to 20 May 2017.

Previous WorldLeish Congresses have been held in Istanbul (1997), Crete (2001), Palermo (2005), Lucknow (2009), and Porto de Galinhas (2013). The Scientific Programme of the upcoming Congress will address issues ranging from molecules to disease control, with the patient as the main focus. The agenda will feature contemporary lectures, hot-topic sessions, and satellite symposia covering the latest developments on leishmaniasis. The educational programme of the Congress will strike a balance between the needs of basic research and clinical issues. We are taking great care in designing a programme that caters to young scientists through fostering scientific exchange, presentations, awards, and social activities.
