ESPHM 2020+1 Bern
ESPHM 2020+1 - 12th European Symposium of porcine health management
Dear friends and colleagues
On behalf of the 12th European Symposium of Porcine Health Management (ESPHM) Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Bern, SWITZERLAND. Once again, the ESPHM is a joint collaboration among three parties including the European College of Porcine Health Management (ECPHM), the European Association of Porcine Health Management (EAPHM) and, for the ESPHM 2020, the Vetsuisse Faculty from the University of Bern. The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) includes also representatives from the Vetsuisse Faculty in Zurich, the Swiss Association of Swine Veterinarians and the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO).
In the light of the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the measures that are already in place in all European countries and beyond during these days, we - the LOC & PCO - feel obliged to make a decision regarding the ESPHM 2020.
Our major aims are the protection of our delegates & speakers from becoming infected, but also the contribution in preventing the further spread of the virus by suspending the current event schedule.
The Congress was postponed to 2021!
