Vis-a-Vis Vector Infection Symposiums are designed to help medical practitioners, healthcare agencies and the public understand more about tick-borne diseases. By presenting and explaining the latest findings about co-infections, symptoms, treatments, and prevention methods we aim to promote and assist best practice in dealing with the severe health problems experienced by humans and animals.
Our approach is two-fold. To help share information about tick and other vector-borne illnesses we bring together UK and international researchers and practitioners from the fields of human and animal medicine. The funding generated by Vis-a-Vis, which is a not-for-profit charity, goes towards the organising of these events and continuing medical research and intervention in this increasingly important area of healthcare.
By working together to raise awareness, diagnosis, and treatment we can improve both the lives and the life chances of vector infection patients and their carers.
