2019 Global Health Conference


As part of the mission of the Robert Stempel College of Public Health and Social, the Global Health Consortium hosted from 3 to 6 of May, the 2019 Global Health Conference, offering three days of cutting-edge workshops and plenary sessions themed around innovative topics and inspiring panelists and speakers. The aim of the conference was to present, analyze and discuss state-of-the art risk analysis and scientific progress on key issues of global health and the serious threats of emerging diseases. This includes new research approaches and innovative scientific and technological solutions to global threats.

During the conference, the OIE presented the activities carried out in the field of Antimicrobial Resistance and its prudent use in animals, as part of the “One Health” approach. The Tripartite Panel was held in one of the three workshops on the last day of the Conference.

In addition to the participation of the OIE, represented by Dr. Maria Eugenia Chimenti, the roundtable was made up of Dr. Pilar Ramón Pardo, WHO/PAHO, Dr. Leopoldo del Barrio, FAO and Dr. Nalini Singh, Consultant of the Division of Health Care Quality Promotion of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States, who acted as moderator.

While the focus of the entire conference was on human health, the OIE’s great efforts to keep antimicrobials effective were very well received by the audience.
