    Summary:

    Spiritual travel, particularly in the form of pilgrimages, has taken place throughout human history, and is a common feature of many world religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Shinto etc. Millions of travelers, many of them elderly or living with chronic conditions embark every year on these spiritual journeys, seeking enlightenment and freedom from suffering, emotional or physical. Mass gatherings are recognized as sources for outbreaks eg meningococcal meningitis, influenza, and possibly even RSV or pneumococcal infections. Hepatitis A, typhoid, cholera and other enteric diseases are also a concern. Environmental stressors, overcrowding and extreme heat can take an additional toll on pilgrims’ health.

    Come and meet our experts with years of experience taking care of pilgrims, for a lively discussion.

    Please note, only the programming in the San Francisco room will be live streamed, and it will be broadcast in the local Basel, Switzerland time zone. All of the Scientific Program will be recorded and available within 24 hours for viewing. Programming will be available for 3 months on the app, and eventually this programming will be migrated and available on the Elevate platform. 

    LOGIN INFORMATION FOR THE DIGITAL CONGRESS

    The digital congress platform is available and will be accessible until 30 August 2023, 23.59 CET.

    DIGITAL PLATFORM

    We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the platform before the start of the congress. Go to the platform and discover the different congress areas for a smooth start on 21 May and a great congress experience.

    Kindly note that the app can’t be downloaded to a computer. But attendees access the digital platform, which is basically the same.

    As a summary - the app is for mobile users, the digital platform for computer users – both options provide exactly the same content / information.
