Leading topic: “Global Child Health in times of pandemics“


Greetings from the organizors

Dear colleagues, students and employees in the health care sector!

We would like to cordially invite you to our 39th annual conference, this year unfortunately under pandemic conditions.

Under the guiding theme “Global Child Health in times of pandemics”, the meeting will be held exclusively virtually on June 5th-6th 2021. We want to address the various impacts of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and other risks/determinants on child health, especially in resource-poor countries, and discuss which interventions will enable children, adolescents and their families worldwide to best cope with the implications of this pandemic. This will also have to include the question of what contribution wealthy nations, which are also affected by the pandemic, can and should make.

On Saturday we have scheduled exciting keynote speeches by renowned speakers and free contributions in the form of short presentations for you. Sunday morning will be reserved for workshops. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation, we had to refrain from a face-to-face event. Nevertheless we could win speakers from Germany, the European and non-European countries for our online program.

The members’ assembly will also have to take place virtually this time. Details will be sent to all members in time.

Unfortunately, we have to postpone the joint celebration and social exchange, otherwise a fixed part of our annual meeting, until next year.

Due to the virtual event mode, we are charging a standard price of 20.00 EUR this year. Students, colleagues from low-ressource countries as well as lecturers and first authors of abstracts can take part free of charge.

We are very much looking forward to your virtual participation and to lively, gladly also controversial discussions.

Join us for this interesting event!

Yours

Carsten Krüger and Benno Kretzschmar

COVID-19: First hand experiences from Brazil and Kenya

ETAT+

ETAT+ (Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment) is a structured and effective intervention designed for primary health structures in resource-linited settings in Africa and Asia. In settings where child mortality is high and most deaths of paediatric patients occur within 24 hours after admission, implementation of ETAT+ reduces intra-hospital mortality.

ETAT helps in identification of acute life threatening problems like severe respiratory problems, shock, severe alterations of consciousness and severe dehydration. ETAT offers a structured way of identifying and treating those conditions.

In our workshop, we will discuss the background of intrahospital child mortality, get to know the elements of ETAT and work through a primary assessement together. There will be the opportunity for questions and discussion with the speakers; they are ETAT instructures and have used or implemented ETAT in resource limited settings.

For participation in the workshop, it is not required to be a member of the AG ETAT or have previous knowledge / experience. Everyone is welcome.

Introductory lecture by Prof. Niessen followed by discussions, small group work and goal setting, and resource gathering for the GTP as well as workshop participants.
