Welcome to Berlin

The first Joint International Conference of the Association of Institutions for Tropical Veterinary Medicine (AITVM) and the Society of Tropical Veterinary Medicine (STVM) at the Humboldt Universitaet zu Berlin brings together animal health and production experts, senior and junior career researchers and students from the North and the South, the East and the West.

Participants will address the holistic concept of “One World-One Health”. Through plenaries, parallel sessions and seminars they will contribute to approach solutions for the improvement of human health and quality of life in tropical regions through enhancement of research, training and education at local, national and global level.

Special emphasis is directed towards animal and zoonotic disease control, food safety, genetic resources and biodiversity, rural development and animal production, training and capacity building and animal welfare.

You are cordially invited to join us in Berlin to meet fellow scientists, colleagues and friends to interact in learning, networking, collaboration and last but not least in enjoying Berlin.
