IWEEE 2014:Social Medicine (English version)

online version
IWEEE
              2014 - Social Medicine - Las Palmas of Gran Canaria
              (Canary Islands), May 29th-30th
Dear community:

Along with the meteoric expansion of information technologies, we have witnessed a swerve in the noble field of medicine. Patients became “clients”, clinical services are now “product lines”, and what we once knew as a social right, namely quality healthcare, is now an optional luxury. Neither a line of code, nor a viral strain may dwell oblivious to this reality.

Hence, as we gradually welcome our first lustrum with consecutive IWEEE chapters, we believe it was our duty to stress on one simple, but often forgotten concept: Social Medicine. It is our humble effort to fill the void between social analysis and everyday clinical practices with innovative projects, bold undertakings and invaluable experiences. We share the same discomfort Dr. Paul E. Farmer – known for his humanitarian work providing "first world" health care for "third world" people – suffered:

“I can’t sleep. There’s always somebody not getting treatment. I can’t stand that”. 

Last year, among other participants, members of Doctors without Borders, Red Cross, the Ministry of Health of El Salvador, UNESCO, and Partners for Health NGO - Tbilisi State Medical University honored us with their presence.

This 2014 edition will be held in Las Palmas of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands),
on May 29th-30th
. It would be our pleasure to rely on your support as well. Find out how you can be a part of IWEEE this year!

Querida comunidad:

Junto con la expansión meteórica de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC), hemos presenciado un viraje en el noble campo de la medicina. Los pacientes se convirtieron en “clientes”, los servicios clínicos son ahora “líneas de producto” y, aquello que una vez conocimos como un derecho social, específicamente una asistencia médica de calidad, es hoy un lujo opcional. No hay línea de código ni cepa viral que pueda morar enajenado de esta realidad. 

Por ello, conforme nos acercamos a nuestro primer lustro con capítulos consecutivos de IWEEE, creemos que es nuestro deber recuperar un concepto simple, pero olvidado: la medicina social. Es nuestro humilde esfuerzo para llenar ese vacío entre el análisis social y las prácticas clínicas del día a día, a través de proyectos innovadores, valientes emprendimientos y experiencias invaluables. Compartimos la misma inquietud del Dr. Paul E. Farmer (reconocido por su trabajo humanitario, ofreciendo cuidados de la salud del “Primer Mundo” a la población del “Tercer Mundo”): 

“No puedo dormir. Siempre hay alguien que no está recibiendo tratamiento. No soporto eso.” 

El año pasado estuvieron, entre otros, miembros de Médicos sin Fronteras, la Cruz Roja, el Ministerio de Salud de El Salvador, UNESCO y Partners de la ONG de Salud – Universidad Médica de Tbilisi nos honraron con su presencia. 

Esta edición 2014 tendrá lugar en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Islas Canarias) los días 29 y 30 de mayo. Sería un placer para nosotros contar también con su apoyo. ¡Conozca más formas de participar en el IWEEE!
