ESCAIDE 2021 opens with a key plenary session at Connecting science and scientific uncertainty during a pandemic. On the second day, speakers will discuss the contributions of real-time modeling during the COVID-19 pandemic and how digital health technologies can be used to transform public health.
The program depends on the presentation of scientific abstracts. This year’s plenary and sessions will focus on shaping issues of the epidemiology of infectious diseases and microbiology over the next decade and beyond. There will be a special focus on the latest research on key issues including COVID-19, food and waterborne diseases, HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, vaccine-preventable diseases, influenza and respiratory viruses. Sessions will also address antimicrobial resistance and emerging diseases.
On Thursday 18 November, the morning sessions will be devoted to the annual European Antibiotic Awareness Day. Speakers will announce the latest data on antimicrobial consumption and resistance in the EU/EEA and address the need for judicious use of antibiotics, particularly when most of the world’s focus is on tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.
The closing plenary will address how the coronavirus pandemic has disproportionately affected certain groups and how health care inequalities can be addressed.
More than 1,500 participants are expected to attend, including epidemiologists, veterinarians, microbiologists, clinicians, public health professionals, science journalists, statisticians, social scientists and policy makers.
