Track 1: Types of STDs and Infectious Diseases

STDs (or STIs) are infections that can mostly be passed on to another person during sex, be it anal, oral or vaginal sex. There are different types of STDs, from very benign to malignant and harmful ones. Nearly 20 different infections are known to be transmitted through sexual contact. Most STDs affect both men and women, but in many cases the health problems they cause can be more severe for women. If a pregnant woman has an STD, it can cause serious health problems for the baby. More than 40 types of HPV can be spread sexually. If untreated, STIs can increase your risk of acquiring another STI such as HIV. Infectious diseases are caused by microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites and can spread between individuals. There are almost 217 types of infectious diseases among them some are such as 'Common cold' include a number of distinct pathogens. Many infectious diseases, such as measles and chickenpox, can be prevented by vaccines.

 Track 2: STD And HIV infection

There are a number of infections and cancers that can develop in people who are living with HIV. There are infections that can be life threatening. These are also known as opportunistic infections. The more common life-threatening infections include a lung infection called Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), an eye infection caused by cytomegalovirus (CMV), a brain infection called toxoplasmosis, and a generalized infection called Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). Cancers that are more common include Hodgkin’s lymphoma, lung cancer, skin cancer, anal cancer, cervical and vaginal cancer in women, and testicular and prostate cancer in men. These cancers can often be successfully treated if they occur in people with HIV who maintain healthy immune systems with HIV treatment.

Sexually transmitted diseases/ sexually transmitted infections are the infectious diseases which are transmitted through sexual contact with an infected individual and transmitted during vaginal or other types of sexual intercourse including oral and anal sex.

Track 3:  Epidemiology of STD-AIDS and Infectious Diseases

Since 1993, STI epidemiology and management have evolved interactively, particularly in developing countries. Technological advances in diagnosis, screening, and treatment; evaluation and widespread implementation of new case-management algorithms; and changes in risk behaviors in response to the AIDS epidemic have all influenced the dynamic typology of STIs. Every year worldwide, there are approximately 357 million new infections of syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis. A major recent advance in STI prevention is the early success of a prophylactic, monovalent human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16 vaccine, HPV vaccines may be able to help prevent genital and anal cancers in the foreseeable future.

Track 9: Health Care - Infectious Diseases

The infections experience in health care settings has become more challenging. Most of the duty workers get exposed commonly to a variety of infectious diseases during the performance of their duties. The primary route of infections transmission is airborne, contact (direct and indirect) which involves the entry of infectious agents from infected individual to a susceptible individual through physical contact and Indirect contact transmission occurs by susceptible individual physical contact with contaminated items. STD-AIDS and Infectious diseases conference 2018 is going to be a platform to discuss microbes that cause illness and its awareness of exposure in the health care settings.

Track 12: Diagnosis of Infectious Diseases

Medical diagnosis is the process of determining which disease or condition explains a person's symptoms and signs. Laboratory tests may identify organisms directly (e.g., visually, using a microscope growing the organism in culture) or indirectly (e.g., identifying antibodies to the organism). General types of tests include microscopy, culture and immunologic tests (agglutination tests such as latex agglutination, enzyme immunoassays, western blot, precipitation tests and complement fixation tests) and nucleic acid/ non-nucleic acid based identification methods. Sub types of diagnoses include clinical, laboratory, radiology, principal and admitting diagnosis. Advanced methods have been implemented to diagnose the infection in any part of the body. Examples include biomarkers/ Elisa test/ chest x ray/ skin biopsy/ tympanometry and tympanocentesis.

Description:

The human immunodeficiency infection (HIV) is a lentivirus that causes ceaseless viral disease. HIV harms the safe framework and keeps the body from battling off the living beings that cause contamination and malady. Without early conclusion and treatment of HIV, the body can go ahead to create AIDS. (AIDS) is the last phase of HIV. The improvement of AIDS meddles with the body's capacity to battle off any life undermining contamination.

HIV is most ordinarily a sexually transmitted contamination. Be that as it may, it can likewise be contracted through contact with contaminated blood or from mother to tyke amid pregnancy, labor or bosom bolstering (vertical transmission).

Infectious diseases are also known as communicable Diseases, and a subject deal with Infectious diseases is called infectiology, it is a medical specialty dealing with the diagnosis, control and treatment of infections. An infectious disease (ID) specialist's practice may consist largely of managing nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections, or it may be out-patient based. ID specialists typically serve as consultants to other physicians in cases of complex infections, and often manage patients with HIV/AIDS and other forms of immunodeficiency. The market report organizes information from diverse sources into a cohesive unit that includes an overview, global implications of infectious diseases, infectious diseases by type, treatment and prevention, emerging pharmaceutical and diagnostic products and an applicable patents section. Information is organized by type of infectious disease (i.e., bacterial, viral, parasitic) and appropriate treatments, both current and anticipated.

Scope:

STD-AIDS and infectious diseases Meeting 2018 welcomes Presidents, CEO's, scientists and examiners in Immunology and Health territories, Delegates and mechanical authorities who are working in HIV and AIDS administrations organizations to appreciate the natural B2B social affairs, trial sessions, and board talks. The associations overseeing wholesome things and supplements can show their things. Outline of HIV, including epidemiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and existing managing plans. Best line HIV showcase salary from 2013–2023. Annual cost of therapy (ACOT) and real direct item bargains in this figuring period are incorporated.

The worldwide HIV therapeutics market was worth around $14 billion in 2013, and Global Data ventures this market to achieve a sum of $15 billion in deals by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 0.9%. These deals are required to come prevalently from the US showcase, as money related starkness measures remain an essential hindrance to the development of the HIV advertise in alternate nations canvassed in this report.Over Global Data's 2013–2023 gauge period, the expanded take-up of STRs is required to drive advertise development. KOLs met by Global Data expect that INI-based STRs — drove by ViiV's  Triumeq and Gilead's Quad 2 — will rule the commercial center for the length of the figure time frame.

More recently, several countries in Asia have documented large reductions in common STIs. Thailand measured a 95% drop in common curable STIs during the 1990s following introduction of the 100% condom use programme implemented by STI clinic staff working with sex work establishments. The largest increase in reported STD cases between 2014 to 2015 occurred in P&S syphilis (19 percent), followed by gonorrhea (13 percent) and chlamydia (6 percent). AIDS is among the leading causes of death in present-day Sub-Saharan Africa. The highest rates are found in Asia and Africa and lower rates are in the Americas and Europe.

According to the WHO, there are 340 million new cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydiasis and trichomoniasis in the 15–49 age group. HPV infections constitute 5,00,000 cases/year of which 80% are reportedly from developing countries. Every year, around 300,000 cervical cancer deaths are registered due to HPV. The same data show approximately 1,370,000 deaths by acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) worldwide in the countries.

There were roughly 36.7 million individuals overall living with HIV/AIDS toward the finish of 2015. Of these, 1.8 million were youngsters (<15 years old). About 2.1 million people worldwide were HIV infected by end of 2015. This incorporates 150,000 youngsters (<15 years). A large portion of  youngesters live in sub-Saharan Africa and was infected by their HIV-positive mothers amid pregnancy, labor or breastfeeding. Currently, just 60% of individuals with HIV know their status. More than 14 million individuals still need to get to HIV testing administrations. Nearly 66% of new HIV diseases were seen in sub-Saharan Africa in 2015.An assessed 35 million individuals have died from AIDS-related illnesses since the begin of the pandemic,  incorporating 1.1 million in 2015.

Why Dubai?

Dubai is one in every foremost cosmopolitan cities  within the world. Living in port contains a ton to supply. It has the biggest population within the UAE (2,106,177) and also the second-largest land territory by space (4,114 km2) when national capital. In Dubai, there are some sixty four Universities, Institutes and faculties out of 103 in UAE, that are directly or indirectly involved into Healthcare. There are some 38 total hospitals and health clinics in Dubai out of which 138 in UAE. Growth is one the key factors driving demand for tending in Dubai, with the population expected to succeed in 3.5 million by 2020.

The city has an older big construction boom since the last decade across all sectors as well as the tending. The ‘New Dubai’ areas facing shortage of Healthcare facilities as most of the facilities exist in ‘Old Dubai’, aforementioned a brand new study. However, 71% of the hospitals in Dubai are set in ‘Old Dubai’ that depicts a big chance for establishing new facilities within the ‘New Dubai’.

Epidemiological update: Legionnaires’ disease cases associated with travel to Dubai, 03 August 2017

The ECDC surveillance scheme (ELDSNet) for travel-associated Legionnaires’ disease [1] has observed an increase in the number of cases associated with travel to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, since the beginning of the last quarter of 2016 compared with 2014–2015 (Figure 1). Case numbers reported in February, April and May 2017 continue to be significantly above the level observed in recent years. This epidemiological update is the sixth since a rapid risk assessment was published by ECDC on 23 December 2016.

Figure 1. Distribution of Legionnaires’ disease cases associated with a stay in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, by month of illness onset, EU/EFTA countries, January 2014 to May 2017, as of 1 August 2017

 

Figure 1: Epidemiological update: Legionnaires’ disease cases associated with travel to Dubai, 03 August 2017

As of 1 August 2017, 72 cases of travel-associated Legionnaires’ disease with a history of visit to Dubai within 2–10 days prior to illness and with onset since 1 October 2016, have been reported to ECDC by EU Member States and one EFTA country. The most recent case has a date of illness onset of 18 July 2017.

Cases were reported by the United Kingdom (34 cases), Sweden (8), Germany (7), France (6), the Netherlands (6), Denmark (4), Austria (1), Belgium (1), the Czech Republic (1), Hungary (1), Ireland (1), Spain (1) and Switzerland (1). The delay between week of illness onset and the actual report date to ELDSNet is around two weeks, ranging from one to six weeks. Therefore, the number of cases reported in the past six weeks is likely to be underestimated.

Sixteen cases stayed at an accommodation in another location in the United Arab Emirates or in a country other than their home country during their incubation period. Two cases were reported as fatal. Fifteen cases stayed in Dubai during the entire duration of their incubation period.

All cases are laboratory confirmed. Five of the cases had their infection further characterised as Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 sequence base type 616 and one as Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 sequence base type 2382.

 

INFECTION TRANSMISSION PERCENTAGE IN MALES & FEMALES

UAE Announces New Awareness Campaign for HIV and AIDS

The Health Ministry in the United Arab Emirates announced a new awareness campaign for HIV and AIDS. In collaboration with UNICEF, the campaign targets individuals between 16 and 24 years of age under the title "All Together". However, amid efforts to educate citizens, some think HIV and AIDS may be underreported in the country, as doctors as required by law to report any cases to the government.

Socially, and especially for Emiratis, the new campaign may be a sign of progress. HIV and AIDS carry a great deal of stigma within the Emirates, according to the recent United Nations report. Raising awareness might help prevent further cases and promote knowledge about the disease. Currently a great deal of misunderstanding and misinformation remains common throughout society. The U.N. report pointed out that much of the ongoing problem with STDs and specifically HIV/AIDS comes as a result of prostitution, drug use and extramarital sex. "The main risk factors among UAE nationals is reported to be extramarital heterosexual relations and intravenous drug use for men, and infection from the spouse for women."

With societal, cultural and religious values the way they currently are within the UAE, the report went on to suggest it would be difficult for policymakers to face these particular challenges. The report and the awareness campaign may be steps in the right direction, but as long as expats remain excluded and face deportation, it seems difficult to believe that the UAE will be able to fully address the problem.
