Friday 22 June 2018

The congress press briefing is open for members of the press attending the congress. Congress co-chairs Prof. Ab Osterhaus and Prof. John Mackenzie will provide an overview of the congress programme, highlighting key lectures and elaborating on major topics. The scope and objectives of the congress will be put in the wider framework of the threats of emerging and re-emeriging diseases and the challenges the world faces when addressing antimicrobial resistance. Members of the press receive detailed information about speakers' backgrounds and expertises and on how to contact them during the congress. The press briefing will not be recorded and can therefore not be shared with journalists who are not attending the congress.

Prof. John Mackenzie, Prof. Ab Osterhaus and other key contributors to the congress will share the main outcomes on aspects of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance. They will inform members of the press about the development of a “White Paper” - established during the congress. The White Paper will provide in-depth descriptions of the major One Health challenges and threats. It will openly state what is going wrong on a societal level, what is lacking and what the gaps are in order to make the world a safer place when it comes to One Health issues. The White Paper will come with a clear call for actions, a roadmap that describes what needs to be done - better and more. The press conference will be live streamed. The accompanying press statement will be distributed to members of the press globally.

An extensive programme of guided excursions to a variety of natural, cultural and historical settings will be offered to congress participants. Excursions are not included in the registration fee and hence need to be booked and paid separately. More information will be made available soon.
