Dear colleagues
dear congress visitors

Every few years, the Swiss medical societies with a common interest in microbiology and infectious diseases organize a joint meeting. This year, the Swiss Society for Infectious Diseases SSI, the Swiss Society for Hospital Hygiene SSHH, the Swiss Society for Microbiology SSM and the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology SSTMP join forces to present you a diverse and attractive scientific programme.


This meeting represents a unique opportunity to meet colleagues from other fields who share strongly related interests. We very much encourage you to show curiosity and use this opportunity to widen your personal and professional horizon. We welcome you to the OLMA in St. Gallen and wish you an excellent congress.
