MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
“ The threat of infectious disease is always present,
as the emergence of new epidemics reminds us.

breakthroughs are making it possible to provide new medical solutions.
The science and the public health challenges are both extremely complex, requiring a global approach to health care: an interdisciplinary, network-based approach, without borders of any kind, that is patient-centered and guarantees the same level of care to all patients regardless of their country of origin.

and our commitment to pushing the boundaries of biology. ”

VISION AND COMMITMENTS
