Influenza is a serious public health problem. During winter seasons, it spreads easily through schools, hospitals, nursing homes, towns and businesses, while its impact is the highest in those most at risk, such as the elderly, young infants and pregnant women. In order to reduce the impact of seasonal influenza, efficient prevention and treatment strategies should be implemented. Preparedness, prevention and treatment strategies will be at the core of the Sixth ESWI Influenza Conference. The conference has a tailor-made programme track for public health officials/policy makers, specifically designed to foster the exchange of knowledge and practice at the interface of science and health policy. The final tailor-made programme is now ready. Click here to download the full programme schedule.
