European Scientific Conference on Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology
This year’s diverse programme is a reflection of the complexity of infectious disease surveillance, prevention and control. Each plenary session highlights the need for dedicated multidisciplinary efforts in a “one-health” approach.
- The keynote: We cover the global public health threat of antimicrobial resistance and its zoonotic dimension.- Plenary B: As social media becomes an integral part of our daily life, we look closely at what the benefits are for threat detection and communicable disease surveillance- Plenary C: We will reflect on the 20th anniversary of the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET) by asking if and how we can ensure that evidence from epidemiological investigations translates into action- Plenary D: We will discuss the emerging challenges to vaccine programmes- Plenary E: The Public Health Event 2015 – we revisit the remaining challenges and recent advances in combatting MERS-CoV and Ebola.
With the expertise and experience that you all bring, you make this Conference an outstanding event and a lasting success! Dr Andrea Ammon, Chair, ESCAIDE Scientific Committee and Acting Director, ECDC
