ESWI Respiratory Virus Summit 2024

Tuesday 5 March 2024

RSV: The Burden of disease and New Intervention Strategies 

 

ESWI Respiratory Virus Summit 2024 will take place on Tuesday 5 March 2024 at the Résidence Palace, official venue of the Belgian Presidency, in Brussels. It will be streaming online as well.

Building on the 2023 session held at the ESWI conference in Valencia, ESWI is set to host this one-day hybrid summit that concentrates on the healthcare and economic impact of RSV disease, along with the potential solutions expected in the near future.

The inspiration for this event remains pertinent, as we continue to witness an increase in RSV infections and remarkable progress in technology and vaccine development. As a result, ESWI firmly believes that maintaining a keen focus on RSV is of utmost importance and in particular on the Science-and-Policy Interface of RSV.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common virus that affects all age groups with varying clinical effects. The virus is transmitted easily through coughing and sneezing with droplets containing the virus. RSV disease is a major burden in young children and older adults, causing hospitalisation and in acute cases, death. Prevention and treatment strategies could be available soon as multiple clinical trials are being held and are showing a high efficacy.

Deadline to register for live attendance is 20 February 2024. If you would like to attend the Summit live in Brussels please contact [email protected] to check available seats. We also provide an option to send your registration information directly to her address.
