Anders Tegnell (State Epidemiologist of Sweden) and Kåre Mølbak (Academic Director at Statens Serum Institute in Denmark) share their experiences on using surveillance to inform policy during the COVID-19 crises.
In light of the recent developments in the pandemic, we have decided to postpone the 4th International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance (ICAHS4) to 3-5 May 2022 in Copenhagen.
Whilst feeling optimistic about hosting the conference in November only a few weeks ago, the recent developments in the COVID-19 situation, in Copenhagen and elsewhere around the world have resulted in the decision to postpone the conference again.
With the health of the global community as a main priority and the planning of participants, speakers, sponsors, and collaborators in mind, we find that it is best to make this decision now rather than later. Furthermore, we hope that by postponing the conference we will ensure that as many as possible will be able to attend the conference.
We hope for your understanding and look forward to welcoming all participants to Copenhagen in May 2022.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 4th International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance (ICAHS4), which will be held 3-5 May 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark. You will join approximately 300 other participants, mainly authority representatives, researchers, veterinarians and other stakeholders from all over the world.
The International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance is a truly unique event creating a forum for the interface between science, food production and policy. The key to effective surveillance that supports animal health, food safety and public health is to bring together scientists, food production representatives and policy makers to understand what is needed and how it can be done with benefits for everyone.
To enable this, ICAHS 4 in Copenhagen will be organised by a consortium of five local partners representing policy, food production and science. Combined with the efficiency and easy access to Copenhagen, we believe that the ICAHS conference placed in Copenhagen will attract a large number of delegates and become an inspiring event that will improve surveillance internationally.
We hope you will join us in Copenhagen!
