The 2015 European Scientific Conference on Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology (ESCAIDE) took place from 11–13 November 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden

This year’s diverse programme was a reflection of the complexity of infectious disease surveillance, prevention and control. Each plenary session highlighted the need for dedicated multidisciplinary efforts in a “one-health” approach.

The keynote covered the global public health threat of antimicrobial resistance and its zoonotic dimension. As social media becomes an integral part of our daily life, we took a close look at what the benefits are for threat detection and communicable disease surveillance. We reflected 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. Other ESCAIDE plenaries focused on emerging challenges to vaccine programmes and the Public Health Event 2015, where we revisited the remaining challenges and recent advances in combatting MERS-CoV and Ebola.
