    Dr. Vanessa Govender

    Director, Masakhane Strategic Health Consulting, Johannesburg, South Africa

    Lecturer, Occupational Health Division, School of Public Health, University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa

     MBBCh (Wits), Post-graduate Diploma in Occupational Health (Wits), Masters in Public Health (Wits)

    Occupational Medicine Specialist

    Dr Vanessa Govender’s occupational medicine and public health career spans more than 25 years in the mining industry in South Africa. She has held various leadership positions at global companies such as Gold Fields and Aveng Group. She has also served as Chair of the Board of the South African Business Coalition on Health and Aids (SABCOHA), Chair of the Mining Industry Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) dust committee, the Certification Committee at the Medical Bureau for Occupational Diseases (MBOD) and as President of the Mine Medical Professionals Association (MMPA). Her career has navigated all aspects of health and wellness in the mining industry and she has experienced, first-hand, the toils and triumphs of how the industry has transformed, and still is transforming.

    Vanessa completed her undergraduate medical degree (MBBCh, 1993) and postgraduate studies (Diploma in Occupational Health (DOH, 1999) and Masters in Public Health, Policy and Management (MPH, 2007)  at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. In addition, she has completed numerous international executive business education courses at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health and the Wits and London Schools of Business. She is a researcher, speaker and lecturer, and has published scientific papers in peer- reviewed journals and contributed to two book chapters: most recently on mental health in the workplace, highlighting the role of corporate companies in providing supportive workplaces.

    In 2019, acknowledging her contribution and clinical acumen in the field of occupational medicine, Vanessa was appointed as a Specialist: Occupational Medicine by the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

    In the last six years, through her company, Masakhane Strategic Health Consulting (Pty) Ltd, Vanessa has consulted widely to diverse clients (including the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, and the Minerals Council South Africa), bringing-cutting edge knowledge to inform policy, strategy, leadership behaviours, and clinical standards for the prevention, early diagnosis, and compensation of occupational diseases. She is passionate about driving health strategy beyond legislative compliance, and ending smoking AND occupational lung diseases - the latter bringing untold suffering to mineworkers, their families and the public health system.

     Vanessa currently holds the position of consultant to Anglo American's global COVID-19 response, applying her philosophy of ‘science, art and heart’ to health risk communication and  strategic occupational health projects. She is a lecturer / academic coordinator for the Post Graduate Diploma in Occupational Health at the Wits School of Public Health, and an associate member of the Colleges of Public Health Medicine of South Africa. She is a member of the Medical Advisory Panel to the Tshiamiso Trust, which was established in response to the R5 bn Silicosis Class Action settlement.

     Vanessa has also contributed extensively to debates on compensation legislation and strongly believes that through her work we can uphold the dignity of workers.

     She believes that education is a lifelong journey of joy and that medicine should be practised with “science, art and heart”, meaning that, while scientific evidence informs our decisions, we have to constantly apply ourselves in the real world by joining all the dots (art)  and placing the patient at the centre within the full context of the psychosocial-political situation (heart).

    Please join the current ISTM Executive Board and the ISTM legal team to discuss the proposed change in status from 501(c)(6) to 501(c)(3).

    The ISTM Executive Board recently announced in Travel Medicine News that ISTM is seeking IRS approval for converting from a 501c6 to a 501c3 status under the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax code. The 501c3 status better reflects the activities of the ISTM and will allow the Society to grow and develop in exciting ways. 

    You may read the entire 501c3 statement from Counsellor Rebecca Acosta on behalf of the Executive Board here

    With the newly proposed tax status, significant updates have been made to the ISTM Bylaws. In full transparency to members, the updated Bylaws are linked below in two versions (1) newly updated Bylaws with edits and (2) newly updated Bylaws clean version (presented without tracked changes for legibility).

    Please join the current ISTM Executive Board and the ISTM legal team to discuss these issues which members will vote on in the upcoming election.

    Webinar presented by the ISTM Professional Education Committee with collaboration from the Pediatric and Migrant Health Interest Groups.


    COMPLIMENTARY REGISTRATION

    Per the Executive Board decision to make COVID-19-related content free to access, this webinar is free to attend live with on-demand access for 365 days.  If you are not a member of ISTM and wish to register for this webinar, please select "Login", above, then click "Register" and choose the "Non-Member" designation in the dropdown menu.

    SUMMARY

    This webinar is presented in collaboration with and with special thanks to ISTM's Pediatric Interest Group and Migrant Health Interest Group, with particular gratitude to the respective Chairs:  Eyal Leshem (Pediatric) and Sapha Barkati (Migrant Health).

    Even though young people make up a very small proportion of severe cases and deaths due to COVID-19, the impact of school closures, social isolation, economic hardship etc. in such a vulnerable population has been enormous. High-risk groups such as migrant children living in precarious conditions or in detention facilities bear a disproportionate burden of adverse outcomes due to the pandemic.  Furthermore, rare but serious complications such as multi-systemic inflammatory syndrome can affect some children and adolescents. Vaccines will offer a way out from the pandemic, but data on safety and efficacy in younger population are still lacking, since they were not included in earlier studies and are not being prioritized to receive the vaccine. 

    Our experts will share with you the latest data on the effects of COVID-19 on children and adolescents’ health, and their insights on possible solutions.

    Course Objectives 
    By the end of this webinar, the attendee should be able to:
    1. Discuss the impact of COVID-19 on migrant children and their families;
    2. Recognize the clinical presentations of severe COVID-19 disease in children and adolescents;
    3.  Summarize the recommendations for safe travel with children during the pandemic, and;
    4. Discuss the best vaccine candidates for this population and, if available, the most pertinent results of COVID-19 vaccine trials in children.

    The first chapter of a four-chapter slide set on travel medicine.

    The ISTM is pleased to present the expanded and updated 2017 version of the popular teaching presentation. The 189-slide PowerPoint slide set is now presented in four chapters - Chapter 1: Introduction to Travel Medicine; Chapter 2: Travel Topics and Special Conditions; Chapter 3: Travel Vaccines; Chapter 4: Vector-borne Diseases.  

    This product is Chapter 1 only.  Each chapter can be purchased individually for 15 USD (Members) or 50 USD (Non-Members).

    All 4 chapters can be purchased together for a reduced price - 40 USD (Members) or 175 USD (Non-Members) - by clicking here.


    The original authors of the slideset are Eric Caumes, MD, Professor of Infectious and Tropical Diseases at the Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris, France, and Bradley A. Connor, MD, Director of the New York Center for Travel and Tropical Medicine, and Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York, United States.

    Since its inception in 2008 the slide set has undergone major updating several times.  With each update, there is an extensive peer-review process by travel medicine practitioners from around the world.

    In this new 2017 edition, Mary-Louise Scully, MD, Director, Travel and Tropical Medicine Center, Sansum Clinic, Santa Barbara, California, and Yen-Giang Bui MD, DTMH, Public Health Department CISSS Monteregie-Centre, Longueuil, Canada have undertaken an extensive update.  The 2017 edition of the slide set has been peer-reviewed by The Professional Education Committee of ISTM and other key opinion leaders of ISTM from Australia, Canada, France, United Kingdom, South Africa, and the United States of America, ensuring the international relevance and applicability of the content.

    The presentations are suitable for lecturing to both healthcare professionals and lay groups.  Slides are grouped by subject area (e.g., Risk Assessment, Vaccines, Malaria, Travelers’ Diarrhea, Special Needs Travelers, Post-Travel Syndromes) for easy customization of lectures.  Material and teaching points are international in scope, allowing the presenter to elaborate on specific local dosing and availability issues.
