 MSF Scientific Day Online 2013

MSF Scientific Day is a unique opportunity to showcase medical and scientific research carried out in MSF programmes around the world.  Presenting and debating the findings from our research is vital to improve the quality of our humanitarian programmes.  By streaming the event online, we hope to engage the wider humanitarian and global health community in this discussion.

The agenda

Highlights include:

  • The keynote speech by international health expert, co-founder of the Gapminder Foundation and TED talks alumnus Hans Rosling on the synergy and conflict between research and advocacy. This will be followed by a panel discussion on the impact of MSF’s research.
  • Treatment in conflict and emergency settings including TB in Somalia and hepatitis E in South Sudan
  • New approaches to preventing malaria in Mali and Chad, cholera vaccination in an outbreak in Guinea, and preventing malnutrition in Niger by cash transfer and food supplementation
  • Challenges for MSF including the introduction of a medical error reporting system and parenteral artesunate for severe malaria
  • The role of social media and health looking at the effect of MDR-TB patients blogging about their experiencesMail Attachment-1
