Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear friends,

The 2014 IUSTI Europe Congress “Migration, recreation, and sexual health” will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Malta between 18-20 September. The host will be the Maltese Association of Dermatology & Venereology (MADV) strongly supported by the British Association of Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) which is a co-organizer of the meeting.

The Scientific Committee led by Dr Jackie Sherrard (Chair) have produced an innovative programme that will be of major interest to STI specialists as well as to colleagues in other specialties (Infectious Diseases, Urology, Gynecology, Family Medicine, and Public Health) whose work may involve STI patients. In addition to the regular important academic topics discussed at IUSTI Europe meetings, this Congress will also address major topical medico-social aspects of sexual health with special emphasis on immigrants particularly those from Africa.

While in Malta, find time to look back into history and visit three sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List: The magnificent Megalithic Temples represent a unique architectural tradition that flourished on the Maltese Islands between 3600 and 2500 B.C; The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum is a rock-cut underground complex that was used both as a sanctuary as well as for burial purposes by the temple builders. The three underground levels date from around 3600 to 2400 B.C. The monument is considered one of the essential prehistoric monuments in the world. The City of Valletta, built after the Great Siege of 1565 and named after the Grandmaster of the Order of St John of Jerusalem, Jean de la Valette, is a fortified city “built by gentlemen for gentlemen” and has hundreds of monuments, all within a relatively small space, making it one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.

Summer is Festa time in Malta when every town and village celebrates the local Saint’s day with processions, village bands, and fireworks, and more fireworks! Nobody remains hungry or thirsty at these celebrations.

Our marvellous Mediterranean climate, delicious cuisine, superb wines and above all our hospitality will ensure our guests have a wonderful experience in true Festa spirit to complement the quality scientific programme on offer. The Congress schedule will ensure both time to work and time to enjoy this wonderful island, certain that you will leave as honorary Ambassadors of this gem in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. Join us with your families in September 2014 for a truly special scientific and human experience.
