The III International Conference on Combating new Coronavirus Infection and Other Infectious Diseases will take place on December 15 and 16, 2022 in St. Petersburg in the FGBU "Presidential Library named after B.N. Yeltsin" at Senatskaya sq., 3.
For this two-day event, which will be held in a hybrid format, we are expecting the participation in person by up to 300 high-level delegates from ministries and departments in charge of infectious diseases prevention and control, the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Africa, Southeast Asia, as well as specialized international, non-governmental and scientific organizations.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference was held by Rospotrebnadzor with the assistance of the Russian Foreign Ministry in St. Petersburg in the beginning of December 2020 and 2021. The annual conference has become a platform for exchanging views and experience of specialists in various fields. During the conference, the most important areas of COVID-19 research were discussed, including molecular epidemiology and immunology of coronavirus infection, clinical features of the disease course, laboratory diagnostics, prospects for the development of drugs for etiotropic therapy of COVID-19, the vaccines effectiveness in the context of virus evolution, and antibiotic resistance of other pathogens during the pandemic.
The conference in 2022 will aim mainly at summarizing the knowledge and experience in combating a new coronavirus infection gained over the past two years by specialists from different countries, presenting the results of joint research with foreign partners on a new coronavirus infection, and demonstrating Russian approaches to the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. In addition, within the framework of the conference, it is planned to hold a final meeting on the program for assessing population immunity to a new coronavirus infection in the countries of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia, at which the results of the two-year project will be presented.
