Reaching The Last Mile is a milestone convening of global health leaders focused on accelerating the elimination of deadly infectious diseases, such as polio and malaria, and preventable neglected tropical diseases, such as Guinea-worm disease and river blindness. 

In partnership with The Carter Center and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the forum will see over 300 government officials, bilateral and multilateral aid leaders, global health experts, and industry leaders share insights and best practice on how to map out and eradicate disease. Interactive sessions, discussions, and workshops will celebrate successes, highlight challenges and identify solutions through the use of vaccines, technology, global health infrastructure, and public-private partnerships.
