Health crises invariably result from multiple factors, the respective contributions of which are challenging to identify and quantify. Health-related outcomes therefore need to be studied using appropriate methods, and epidemiologists play a key role in providing valid information to public authorities. Providing a relevant epidemiological analysis of crises is indeed essential for establishing appropriate and proportionate control measures, but also for anticipating the future, in terms of both the direct consequences of the crisis and our ability to use the experience acquired to improve public health policies.
This congress aims at providing opportunities to explore these issues in depth. Other topics will be also presented, including the epidemiology of chronic diseases, infectious diseases, methodological issues, quantitative and qualitative analysis, vaccine impact, access to care, etc. Efforts will be made to share expertise and education with junior epidemiologists.
