Webinar: International Health Policy Forum for the Elimination of HTLV. Meeting Report

Human T cell lymphotropic virus (HTLV) infection affects mainly vulnerable population groups: people living in poverty in areas with very low human development indexes, sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, and epidemiologically closed and semi-closed population groups including traditional populations and indigenous people. This virus and its consequences have been neglected for decades, despite the high morbidity and mortality attributable to HTLV infection.
