Biosketch

Epco Hasker graduated as a medical doctor from Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and studied tropical medicine at the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) in Antwerp, Belgium. From 1993 till 2001 he worked in leprosy and tuberculosis control programs in Nigeria and Afghanistan/Pakistan.

In 2001 he returned to ITM and obtained an MSc in ‘Disease Control’ in 2002. After obtaining his MSc he returned to tuberculosis control; for 6 years he worked in countries of the former Soviet Union (Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan).

In 2008 he again joined ITM, this time as a scientific collaborator working on neglected tropical diseases, in particular visceral leishmaniasis and human African trypanosomiasis (HAT).

In 2010 he obtained a PhD from the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on ‘Control of chronic infectious diseases in low resource settings’; in 2013 he was registered as an epidemiologist in the Netherlands.

Currently he teaches statistics and epidemiology in the MPH courses at ITM and in the European Course on Tropical Epidemiology (ECTE). He is also involved in research projects on visceral leishmaniasis (mainly in India) and HAT (mainly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo).
