In the midst of a global pandemic, it is impossible to predict with any certainty when the epidemic will have run its course, as it is affecting different regions
of the world at different times. This will remain a challenge for the planning of all our in-person events in the coming months.
Your safety is our priority and whenever we do host an in-person/hybrid event, all COVID-19 regulations and safety protocols will be observed, ensuring a safe and secure event for all our attendees. Sanitizing stations, masks, personal sanitizing wipes/spray will be freely available and the necessary social distancing regulations will be implemented throughout the event.

UPCOMING HYBRID EVENTS
Considering the rapidly evolving environment and the government’s guidelines for mass gatherings, the below planned events may be postponed. If restrictions continue for an indefinite period, or if additional restrictions are implemented, it may be necessary to cancel the event altogether.We continue to monitor the latest guidelines from our government and the WHO and remain committed to keeping you informed as developments unfold.
The 18th Annual SASVEPM Congress will be hosted as a Hybrid Event, comprising of both an in-person and a virtual congress. The congress will be held from 25-27 August 2021 at Bela-Bela Forever Resort in Limpopo.
Presenters of all accepted oral and/or poster presentations will be invited to present in person at the congress venue in Bela-Bela (Limpopo), while regular attendees will be encouraged to attend the congress virtually.
This SASVEPM Congress’ new flexible hybrid format will enable us to safeguard our members’ well-being and facilitate your participation wherever you are based, while at the same serving you with access to valuable online discussions within our society.
We are therefore pleased to announce that abstract submissions for both oral and poster presentations are open for the 2021 Congress of the Southern African Society for Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (SASVEPM). Registration for the congress is due to open in May 2021.
We encourage abstract submissions related to disease surveillance economics, outbreak investigations, antimicrobial resistance, disease control, policy, public health and diagnostics and case reports within the suggested themes. However, we also welcome submissions within the broader field of epidemiology and preventative medicine as our members have a wide base of interest.
We welcome all submissions and look forward to providing the best platform for our members’ ongoing contribution to the field of epidemiology and preventative medicine.
