Influenza Preventing Policies for children -Scientific Symposium - Faculty Club Univ. of Lueven Belgium - June 14, 2017 - Sunday, October 02, 2016

 

View this email in your browser

You are kindly invited to participate in ESWI’s colloquium on influenza preventing policies for children. The event will gather key opinion leaders in paediatrics, family medicine, public health policy, regulatory affairs and academic influenza research.
 
ESWI organizes this scientific symposium in response to the observation that – despite WHO’s recommendations to routinely vaccinate young children against influenza – only five EU Member States have actually included this target group in their influenza vaccination programmes.
 
Through various expert lectures and debates, the colloquium aims to:
  • explore the variety of influenza vaccination programmes for children in the EU
  • address possible hurdles for childhood vaccination
  • spark the scientific debate on concerted, well-balanced influenza preventing policies for children in Europe.
Registration
Participation in the colloquium is free of charge, but places are limited. Register now to secure your seat.

Programme
The colloquium programme is designed to maximize the exchange of ideas and to foster audience participation. The following experts have agreed to lecture during the colloquium: 
  • Prof. Susanna Esposito, University of Perugia, Italy

    “The very concept of ‘One Health’ is ancient,” says Dr. William Karesh, Executive Vice President for Health and Policy at EcoHealth Alliance. “But our world has changed dramatically, and what’s really exciting is that with 21st Century innovation we have the opportunity to begin to end the pandemic era.”

    Human, Animal and Plant Health Connectedness - Industry’s Role:

  • Dr. Carsten Brunn, Bayer’s Head of Pharmaceuticals, Americas Region

  • Frank Terhorst, Bayer’s Global Head of Seeds

    “With emerging issues like a rapidly aging population and new and increasingly complex medical needs, our industry is at the forefront of advancements in science and technology that will help cure and prevent some of the most difficult-to-treat conditions, and improve lives,” said Dr. Carsten Brunn, Bayer’s Head of Pharmaceuticals, Americas Region. “With Bayer's focus across the life science ecosystem, we are actively working to discover and develop innovations that impact the health of people, animals, and plants.”

    “As the world’s population is projected to increase by more than three billion people in the next thirty years, we will require an adequate supply of healthy food as well as improved medical care,” stated Frank Terhorst, global head of seeds at Bayer CropScience. “Our research and development activities, fundamental to the well-being of society, are therefore linked by the concept of ‘One Health,’ with the goal of finding solutions to some of the major challenges of our time.”

    Panel Discussion:  How to Move “One Health” Forward

  • Dr. Eddie Sullivan, CEO, SAB Biotherapeutics and Chairman, BIO Food & Ag Section Governing Board (moderator)

    “Science and technology hold the promise of securing a healthier world for humans, animals and the environment,” says Dr. Eddie Sullivan, CEO, SAB Biotherapeutics and Chairman, BIO Food & Ag Section Governing Board. “To make these breakthroughs a reality, we’ll need a collaborative approach for addressing existing political and economic obstacles and opportunities.”

    In our speaker presentations and panel discussions, attendees will hear stories that illustrate the concept of “One Health” and how modern technologies are enabling us to solve global challenges through a collaborative One Health-focused approach. Panelists will also explore the barriers to success and what industry and others can do to solve the problems One Health is poised to address.
