Successful Malaria-Treatment: A Common Global Challenge for the Future?
Worldwide, every 45 seconds a child dies of malaria.
The fight against malaria is one of the most important challenges within development politics as in Africa alone, malaria leads to an annual loss of productivity of more than US$12 billion.
Prof. Zul Premji will point out the health economical impact of malaria and will share best practices in the fight against malaria. A discussion together with Dr. Rolf Koschorrek, Member of the German Parliament, and Guy Lefrand, Member of the French Parliament, will focus on current challenges for development politics in Europe.
This Novartis Partner Symposium takes place at October 1th, 2010, 12.45-13.15 in the Main Hall. (Click here to see session details).
Neurological Diseases: A Major Challenge for Science and Socioeconomics
The size of common neurological disorders in EU has been steadily increasing over the past decade and is likely to continue to increase further. Can improved early recognition and care strategies at least stabilize the burden of disease?
Furthermore development of innovative drugs becomes more and more important in this context. However the main challenge in basic as well as clinical research is to translate the increasing knowledge into effective therapeutic strategies. This main challenge in medical research is highlighted and discussed taking Multiple Sclerosis as an example.
This Novartis Partner Symposium takes place at October 11th, 2010, 13.20-14.50 in the Main Hall. (Click here to see session details).
The Globalization of Infectious Diseases: Cause and Consquence
The renaissance and (re)-emergence of infectious diseases is entirely a consequence of human behaviour. The more human beings on this planet, the better the life of all microbes able to infect humans.
Risk assessments have clearly demonstrated that technological advances, environmental changes, novel life styles including highly enhanced mobility, microbial resistance, global inequalities in health services, etc. all impair medical development on a global scale. This symposium will summarize the global efforts to fight microbial resistance, the spread of the worst infectious diseases HIV and tuberculosis and the inequalities in access to medicine.
The sanof-aventis Partner Symposium takes place at October 12th, 2010, 13.15-14.45 in the Main Hall. (Click here to see session details).
