World Health Day on 7 April 2024

World Health Day 2024 is all about "My health, my right". ESCMID believes in the right of everyone, everywhere to have access to quality health services, education, information, and freedom from discrimination among other important aspects.

To this end we are sharing for free our Pre-ECCMID Day Hands-on Workshop addressing the diagnostics of STIs. Accessible with a free ESCMID account in the ESCMID eLibrary, you can watch this educational workshop exploring the implementation of molecular diagnostics pertaining to these types of infections.
