Towards ecologically-realistic genetic mosquito population control strategies for disease elimination
ID
873876
Dates
03 Apr 2017 - 04 Apr 2017
Location
Newport Pagnell, United Kingdom
Abstract
Traditional chemical approaches to mosquito control are fast becoming less effective and acceptable. Worryingly, the implementation of effective novel genetic mosquito control strategies requires knowledge in mosquito behaviour, ecology and genetics that is currently very fragmentary. This extraordinary meeting of leading researchers in these fields will delineate strategic integrative research avenues addressing critical bottlenecks in implementing future vector control programmes. This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking.

SPAD 2017 — Special Pathogens and Associated Disease conference
ID
842191
Dates
27 Apr 2017 - 29 Apr 2017
Location
Ishaka Bushenyi, Uganda
Abstract
Africa have not yet recovered from the epidemic caused by the big three disease HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria and yet emerging and re-emerging disease pathogens such as Ebola, Nodding disease, ZIKA, SARS, and others are advancing their strategy to devastate and kill its victims. To be in control, we must be able to pilot and develop a system that can mobilize a competent team to predict and respond to any outbreak in any African region. This will help to prevent a repeat of the scale of death by Ebola in West Africa. This conference therefore will bring together the best brains in Africa and our friends from other continents to discuss the way forward with respect to resource mobilization capacity building and so on.

Dates
08 May 2017 - 09 May 2017
Location
Montreal, Canada
Abstract
The Université de Montréal and the Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM) are proud to announce that they will be hosting the 1st World Health Summit (WHS) of the M8 Alliance to be held in North America. The world leaders in global health will be attending this prestigious event, including over 800 researchers, doctors, industry leaders, decision-makers, government members and civil society actors from around the world. Based on the theme of “Health and Healthcare Delivery in Pluralistic Societies,” this interdisciplinary event will focus on the question of human diversity in the practice, education, research and public policy pertaining to health. In pluralistic societies that welcome diversity, such as ours, many factors will impact health and the provision of healthcare, including globalization, immigration, social and economic inequalities, lifestyle, and culture. We believe that it is our mission, as scholars, to turn our attention to this important phenomenon and to analyze it in depth.

Abstract
The need for preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organised efforts and informed choices of society, organisations, public and private sectors, communities and individuals has been gathering pace in the ever changing World. The current public health agenda sets out a clear role for all healthcare professionals to be involved in improving the health of the population they serve. There is now the trend toward multi-professional working in public health sectors around the World. This is complicated by advances in medical practice and techniques, which meant that people are living longer with various health challenges. Public Health Workers are also required to be involved in research and education in order to improve their skills and techniques. The courses on Mastering Practical Public Health Skills are designed to equip professionals with the knowledge and understanding in order to face the challenges in public health and medical practice in the 21st Century.

ID
877056
Dates
23 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017
Location
Scottsdale, AZ, United States
Abstract
The growing awareness that racial/ethnic minority groups experienced inferior health outcomes when compared to the overall population led to an increased focus and interest from the U.S. Congress and Federal Government in implementing actions focused on addressing health disparities in this country. Consequently, there has been an increased multidisciplinary research effort in addressing problems associated with health disparities especially on diseases of the cardiovascular system. In recognition of the need to put the issue of health disparities front and center of health care delivery in the US, this SRC will focus on a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing health disparities and inequities in the United States.

Keystone Symposia: Vectors, Pathogens and Diseases – Current Trends and Emerging Challenges
ID
883484
Dates
10 Sep 2017 - 14 Sep 2017
Location
Durban, South Africa
Abstract
The elimination or eradication of several vector-borne diseases is high on the agenda of the World Health Organization, including malaria, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and trypanosomiasis. Sustainable vector control is currently the only mass prevention strategy. Success, however, is hampered by many challenges posed by both the vectors and the pathogens. These challenges include insecticide resistance in mosquitoes and drug resistance in parasites with little on the immediate horizon to alleviate these problems. Insecticide and drug resistance are two parallel phenomena in vectors and parasites. While combination drugs have been developed to overcome parasite resistance to monotherapies, only four classes of insecticides are available for vector control. The unexpected emergence of arboviruses such as Zika in Brazil and south-east Asia, yellow fever in southern Africa, Dengue and Chikungunya, etc. pose their own unique challenges. In addition, the difficulties in “going the final mile” to achieve elimination, in terms of surveillance, capacity and funding, will be addressed. The key goals of this Keystone Symposia conference are to review the latest scientific knowledge on vectors and pathogens that are responsible for emerging or re-emerging diseases, to highlight the problems facing various parts of the world, to address innovative methods for the control or elimination of vector-borne diseases and to enhance awareness of the landscape of vector-borne diseases and related new scientific knowledge aiming at improving the health of vulnerable human populations. It also aims to break down the “insect silos” in which the vector-borne disease research community too commonly operates, providing a forum for researchers to interact, create networks and partnerships, exchange ideas, and think creatively across disciplines.

ISAAR & ICIC 2017 will provide a variety of programs on important recent topics such as the current major issues in infectious diseases and AMR, new antibiotics and vaccines, infection control, and emerging infectious diseases. The joint meeting will expand the scope of programs and topics encompassing microbiology, clinical infectious diseases, epidemiology, genomic medicine, biotech development, and international policies and strategies to combat infectious disease threats. Many academic societies in the Asian region will join the meeting as supporting societies and pharmaceutical, diagnostics, and biotech companies will also be a part of the joint meeting.
