The workshop will provide insights of current and possible future therapies combining pathogen-directed targeting together with host-directed drug therapy to achieve augmentation of protective host factors to efficiently eliminate the invading pathogen. This is highly relevant world-wide and particular in developing countries with high infection rates and drug-resistant strains.
