 Non-animal Testing of Vaccines - A Global Congress

Bangkok, Thailand
December 3-4, 2019

 

IABS and Vac2Vac are honoured to be organizing a Global Congress that will focus on replacement of in vivo testing of vaccines by in vitro methods with utilization of new and improved technologies. Progresses made with analytical tools and their applications have contributed to development of fast, precise and highly reliable in vitro tests that will allow batch to batch release of vaccines by consistency approach. Recent case studies on specific vaccines will be reviewed, and ongoing as well as future studies on other vaccines will be discussed. A particular emphasis will be placed on global coordination in areas of manufacturing and testing practices, and regulatory acceptance, with the goal of reducing time to market and increasing global access to vaccines. Participation from all of these areas of vaccine development, especially from LMICs and GAVI countries, is strongly encouraged. Bangkok has been selected as the site for this Congress because of its location amid countries with emerging vaccine producers and growing needs for vaccines.

We are honoured to have pledges of support from global foundations and partners from emerging economies.

Meeting objectives:

The meeting aims at snowballing efforts and achieving substantial progress in rabies control in the Asia-Pacific region of the world in the near future. As the key focus is placed on canine rabies the meeting will be an important contribution to the initiative of the United Against Rabies collaboration of the World Health Organization (WHO), World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC) of ending human dog-mediated rabies by 2030. Recognized international and local experts will give insights into state-of-the art intersectoral One Health approaches, standards, available tools and guidelines developed by international organizations and institutions and best-practice examples from the region on how to prevent human rabies by eliminating rabies at its animal source. As such the meeting provides a platform for health and veterinary services, managers of national and local rabies eliminations programs, researchers and other people interested in advancing knowledge of rabies surveillance, prevention and control, to meet each other, to share their experience and also to discuss challenges to overcome. The meeting is considered to be a starting point for a continuous professional exchange on the way to a rabies free Asia-Pacific.

Diagnostics in the Veterinary Field:
The Role in Health Surveillance and Disease Identification

May 15-17, 2019
Dorinth Pallas Hotel
Wiesbaden, Germany

Organized by IABS

Objectives

Diagnostics are an essential tool to ensure the health of domestic and wild animals for both endemic and emerging diseases.  They allow animal health professionals to understand and manage the general health status of domestic animals. They are also important tools to support public health initiatives in the case of zoonotic disease control. The meeting will provide an overview of existing systems and approaches / strategies for the use of diagnostics and to discuss the currently available diagnostics. The advantages / benefits and disadvantages / gaps of the current methods and methodologies will be identified and discussed. Proposals on how to increase the quality, efficacy, and utility of the existing strategies and methods and those under development will be made.
