4th ESCMID Conference on Vaccines - New and old diseases in children and adults - unmet needs


8 - 10 September 2017, Dubrovnik, Croatia

Conference Objectives

ESCMID is concerned that a lack of evidence-based information among healthcare providers and the lay public may undermine the efficacy of future vaccination campaigns. As part of its multidisciplinary approach to fight infections, ESCMID is committed to improve the scientific basis for vaccines and optimize their use in the healthcare setting. This conference is set to bring together leading experts who will present and debate the most recent data to develop strategies that will help protect generations to come from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Specialists or physicians in training in infectious diseases, clinical microbiology, hygiene, public health, vaccinology and other disciplines dealing with all aspects of vaccination.
