IPVS´s first hybrid event will take place in June 21 - 24, 2022 at Riocentro Convention Center. The event´s main theme is New Perspectives in Swine Culture: biosecurity, production, and innovation. Participants will discuss the current challenges and key global issues in the pig farming industry.

The Scientific Committee has been focusing on a variety of issues of global importance in the areas of reproduction, bacterial and viral diseases, animal welfare, immunology of the mucosa, nutrition, and the use of antimicrobial agents. Furthermore, in an attempt to offer a coherent program and take into account the interest of the various industry sectors, the event will offer Pre-congress sessions on six different areas of interest, including one on agribusiness scheduled on June 21.

The Pre-congress session on agribusiness is the first of its kind in the history of IPVS, clearly making room for several industry sectors to gain more visibility.

According to the President of IPVS2022 and veterinarian Fernanda Almeida, PhD, discussion panels have become more technical and comprehensive throughout the years, with attendees adding more value to their pig farming practices, businesses, and companies worldwide.

Brazil has taken large strides in terms of COVID-19 vaccination. According to a media consortium, more than 140 million Brazilians, i.e., 65% of Brazil´s total population have already received two doses or the single dose vaccine and are, therefore, fully immune to COVID-19.

Approximately 19 million people have already received the booster shot.

IPVS2022 organizer are the Brazilian Association of Pig Veterinarians (Abraves), with the support of other major Brazilian pig farming associations such as the Pig and Poultry Division of the Brazilian Agriculture and Livestock Research Institute (Embrapa), the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA), the Brazilian Association of Pig Farmers (ABCS), and the Brazilian Association of Swine Genetics Companies (ABEGS)
