The 15th Brazilian Congress of Hansenology is a special edition of the SBH congresses, and this year the Brazilian Society of Hansenology (Sociedade Brasileira de Hansenologia) is celebrating 70 years. Programming includes discussions with colleagues from SBH’s areas of expertise, especially infectology and neurology, as well as rheumatology.
