22nd IWHOD – Internationa Workshop on HIV and Hepatitis Observational Databases

2018-03-22 09:00 - 2018-03-24 22:00 Europe/Rome

22nd IWHOD – Internationa Workshop on HIV and Hepatitis Observational Databases
Welcome to the 22nd Workshop website.

Workshop’s missionThe International Workshop on HIV and Hepatitis Observational Databases IWHOD brings senior and junior HIV and hepatitis observational database researchers together to advance the methodology and analysis of observational data.

No other workshop or conference devotes attention to the methodology of setting up and analyzing observational data, despite their importance in providing critical information on population outcome in real world settings outside the controlled setting of randomized trials.

We are once again aiming to include attendees representing cohort studies from all regions. As in the past, we encourage discussion of work in progress, so all data presented will not be publicised outside of the Workshop.

    This one-day workshop entitled “Viral Hepatitis Elimination in PWID: A Roadmap to Elimination in Italy” is co-organised by EASL International Liver Foundation (EILF) and the San Patrignano Community and will bring together leading experts in viral hepatitis, the drug treatment community in Italy and key stakeholders such as government officials, industry representatives, patient organisations and scientific societies.

    The programme, presented by international experts, aims to provide the latest updates on viral hepatitis treatment in PWID while providing participants with the unique opportunity to network and exchange experiences and ideas for viral hepatitis elimination among people who inject drugs (PWID) in Italy.

    Bringing all the stakeholders together, this workshop aims to not only kick-start the call to action for viral hepatitis elimination in PWID in Italy but to also generate a multi-stakeholder plan of action to turn this vision into reality.

    We look forward to welcoming you to San Patrignano, Italy on 10 October 2018!

    HIV Drug Therapy Glasgow 2018 Conference - 28 to 31 October 2018

    HIV Drug Therapy-

    The programme is of interest to clinical investigators from across the globe to review current research and discuss its implications for HIV management strategies.

    Although there has been steady progress in HIV drug treatment, significant challenges still remain, including persistence of elevated risk of non-AIDS morbidity, with potential for HIV and/or antiretroviral therapy (ART) as causes, paediatric and adolescent care, models of care for the ageing population, and treatment issues throughout less well-resourced parts of Europe and the rest of the world.

    The Congress is also moving into areas beyond treatment, such as prevention, with time in the programme focussed on pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and issues across Europe and beyond.

    The important role of people living with HIV in treatment decisions and self-management continues to feature, and we look forward to a number of perspectives in the programme from the community.

    The programme maintains the plenary session presentation format. In addition to plenary presentations, the programme will include Keynote Lectures, the Lock Lecture, Industry Sessions and presentations based on abstracts submitted.

    The congress welcomes abstract submissions, and whilst only a small number can be accepted for oral presentation, we anticipate a sizeable display of Scientific Posters in the Congress Exhibition Hall throughout the Congress.

  • Le Malattie Infettive del migrante e del viaggiatore a Ferrara - Italy
    2018-11-09 Tutto il giorno

    Le Malattie Infettive del migrante e del viaggiatore a Ferrara - Italy

    Le Malattie Infettive del migrante e del viaggiatore a Ferrara - ItalyQuesto testo è stato redatto in occasione del congresso del 2016
    Malattie Infettive del migrante: In Italia, negli ultimi vent’anni, la popolazione immigrata è cresciuta di quasi 20 volte, subendo, nell’ultimo decennio, un incremento pari a oltre il 150%, con rilevanti differenze tra le regioni.

    Al quel patrimonio di salute in dotazione all’immigrato che appariva giovane, forte, con maggiore stabilità psicologica e spirito d’iniziativa e quindi più sano (effetto migrante sano), si è contrapposto, al suo arrivo in Italia o in altri paesi ospitanti, un patrimonio che si sta dissolvendo sempre più rapidamente (effetto migrante esausto), per malessere psicologico, mancanza di lavoro e reddito, degrado abitativo, assenza di supporto familiare.

    La nuova organizzazione della vita conseguente al totale sradicamento dall’ambiente di origine e dalle proprie sicurezze è divenuta e diviene così ogni giorno fonte di stress e pericoli per la salute.

    In tale contesto, anche le Malattie Infettive del migrante, pur non preponderanti tra le patologie del migrante, rappresentano un importante focus del fenomeno migratorio, anche se spesso identificano il migrante quale untore da bonificare e da cui difenderci.

    È innegabile che l’emergere di nuove patologie infettive e la ricomparsa di altre che sembravano destinate a ridursi o addirittura destinate ad estinguersi, rappresentano argomenti più che mai attuali nella società in cui viviamo e perciò riportate all’attenzione in questa nuova edizione del Convegno.

    Il rischio di contrarre la TB è pari a 10-15 volte in più tra gli immigrati rispetto alla popolazione italiana, per la fragilità sociale legata al processo migratorio e al paese ospitante, in cui l’incidenza è assai bassa e stabile (5-7 casi/100.000 abitanti). L’infezione da HIV/AIDS, evidenzia un costante e rapido aumento nel tempo dei casi notificati in stranieri, con un tasso di incidenza di quasi 4 volte superiore a quella italiana.

    A questa si aggiungono le altre Malattie Sessualmente trasmesse facilitate anche dalle condizioni di sfruttamento sessuale cui sono sottoposti donne e uomini immigrati.

    La tutela della salute dei migranti è oramai divenuta una delle sfide in Sanità Pubblica e riguarda proprio la necessità di garantire percorsi di tutela a coloro che per vari motivi si trovano a vivere ancora ai margini del sistema, in condizioni di fragilità sociale, economica e culturale.

    Le caratteristiche interdisciplinari del convegno permetteranno ai partecipanti di interagire con tutte le professionalità presenti, stimolando la collaborazione e migliorando il network di assistenza all'utente. Giunto alla sua quinta edizione, il convegno, organizzato dal Prof. Carlo Contini, oltre a fare il punto sulla situazione socio-sanitaria dei migranti nel nostro Paese, focalizza anche gli aspetti epidemiologici e clinici delle nuove Malattie Infettive del migrante, emergenti e riemergenti anche legate ai viaggi che hanno un impatto considerevole sulla salute pubblica.
