The 7th Triennial Meeting IFFAS is proceeding as planned in Viña del Mar, Chile, at the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center April 23 – 25, 2020.
As the meeting draws near, we would like to take this opportunity to update you on the situation of Chile in the emerging and rapidly evolving details of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). For IFFAS, the health, safety and well-being our event attendees, guests and exhibitors are our highest priority.
Since this is an emerging and rapidly evolving situation, we will be informing through our website and social media about the latest news and measures taken in Chile to face the emergency.
To date, there are no restrictions on tourists entering the country.
The government has implemented a sworn health statement that must be completed by travelers on international flights and the installation of a sanitary control unit where passengers from high-risk areas will be administered the coronavirus test.
Supporting safety preparedness efforts surrounding COVID-19 are underway for the IFFAS Meeting, and the organization meet daily to discuss evolving details related to the current outbreak, as available from the Chilean ministry of Health and World Health Organization.
IFFAS is also working closely with key conference stakeholders, to evaluate any risk in the host city.
We are ready to host an outstanding meeting at the beautiful city of Viña del mar in Chile from april 23 to 25 of 2020, preparing everything to receive the best foot and ankle surgeons from around the world to share the latest advances in our subspecialty.
