Theme #1: Immunization and Vaccines (in collaboration with the Public Health Pillar)
Overwhelming evidence demonstrates the benefits of immunization as one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions known. Over the past several decades, immunization has achieved many things, including the eradication of smallpox, an accomplishment that has been called one of humanity’s greatest triumphs. Vaccines have saved countless lives, lowered the global incidence of polio by 99 percent and reduced illness, disabilities and death from from diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, Haemophilus influenzae type B, and epidemic meningococcal A meningitis.
EMSA aims to raise awareness on current health issues and threats across Europe. By following the latest achievements in the field of vaccinology, medical students can get better informed of the critical role of vaccines easing people from the economical, social, and mortal burdens of many diseases in a practical and cost effective way.

Theme #2: Interprofessional Collaboration (in collaboration with European Healthcare Students’ Associations’ Summit – EHSAS)
Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) happens when multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together with patients, families, carers and communities to deliver the highest quality of care. This collaborative practice strengthens health systems and improves health outcomes.
A base for successful interprofessional collaboration is interprofessional education (IPE), that helps future health professionals to perceive the importance of collaborative practices; once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team and this is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.
