The concept behind the local organization of the Congress is to bring together the competences and experience of different fields of medicine that deals in the day to day practice with venereal diseases. The Romanian Medical Association (founded in 1866) will represent the back-bone of the local team together with the affiliated national associations of different specialities. Dermato-venereologists, infectionists, microbiologists, epidemiologists, oral pathologists and other specialties will find a special place of interest in the IUSTI Congress as the multidisciplinary sessions will deal with the hot problems of venereology.
The scientific programme will deal with current challenging issues with updated topics in sections that will benefit from the interventions of international key opinion leaders. Sessions will facilitate knowledge-exchange and multidisciplinary interactions to try to find solutions together for teming the tide of the STIs and HIV (our modern… vampires).
