Journée scientifique Epicentre

Each year, Epicentre organises a Scientific Day during which the epidemiologist team reports on the works of the previous year. This event brings together MSF field players and world-renown experts, and it is becoming a major meeting place to share knowledge and critical views on the practices and stakes of medicine in humanitarian situations.
