3rd Symposium on tropical medicine and infectious diseases



Third symposium on tropical medicine and infectious diseases
in an international military context 2022

25th and 26th August 2022 in Hamburg



Dear generals, officers, colleagues, ladies, and gentlemen,

with reference to the first and second symposium on tropical medicine and infectious diseases in a military context in 2016 and 2019, we cordially invite you for a third time to this event on 25th and 26th August 2022 in Hamburg. Again, up-to-date topics from the fields of infectious disease prevention, diagnostics, treatment and management will be in the focus of the discussions. The symposium will be organized in cooperation of the German Association of Military Medicine and Pharmacy (DGWMP e. V.) in Bonn and the Bundeswehr Hospital Hamburg. It will take place at the headquarters of the Hamburg Association of Statutory Health Insurance -Physicians (“Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Hamburg”). The program as well as detailed information regarding registration, travel information, social events etc. will be available in spring 2022.

The present corona crisis increased the importance of preparation for infectious disease-associated medical scenarios in the field of military medicine. Beyond, military deployments may lead to an import of infectious agents such as gastrointestinal parasites, atypically resistant or even multidrug-resistant bacteria, viral causes of acute and chronic infections as well as rare or emerging tropical pathogens. Military medical research must focus on solutions for the arising problems on deployment and after return of service members to their home countries. In addition, military deployments in tropical environments that are rich in zoonotic and vector-borne infectious diseases are a matter of concern to be addressed in an appropriate way by a one health approach.

Knowledge, awareness, and expertise in the areas of prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and management of tropical and infectious diseases remain crucial to be prepared for present and future challenges. This is particularly true for remote settings as well as on board of military ships. Finally, infectious diseases in large groups of refugees may become another challenge.
