2nd European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Conference on Impact of Vaccines in Public Health

As part of its multifaceted approach to infections, ESCMID strives to promote vaccination and worries that the current lack of correct information among both lay public and healthcare providers might seriously undermine the efficacy of current and future vaccine campaigns. This conference will bring together world-leading experts to debate the many-sided correlations between vaccines, medicine and society at the dawn of the third millennium.

Microbial resistance to chemotherapeutic agents is not a new development: the first lactam hydrolysing enzyme was identified before penicillins were even introduced to the clinic. Extended spectrum resistance to the major classes of chemotherapeutic agents is now common across many microorganisms, particularly pathogenic bacteria, due in part to over- and mis-use of antibiotics over the last 50 years. Global travel and greater social interaction has facilitated rapid transmission of infectious diseases, such as malaria, TB, HIV and HCV, resulting in an international agenda for addressing the lack of prevention and treatment options for these diseases.

  • When:  Throughout March 2013
