We are pleased to communicate that the ALIVE Congress (Animal Leishmaniosis International Veterinary Event), organized by the LeishVet group, was successfully held in Málaga between March 31st and April 2nd, 2022. Its international character has allowed a total of 197 (in person) and 202 (online) researchers, practitioners and dermatologists from 26 countries to come together for the event.

This congress featured Speakers, in this field, of recognized international standing, in addition to a large number of researchers presenting their research results through oral communications or posters.

For LeishVet and the entire Organizing Committee, it has been an excellent opportunity to meet again, to share knowledge and to be inspired by the enthusiasm, cooperation, continuous learning of the participants and, in short, to keep up to date with the advances in research and clinical management of a disease that interests us all as “leishmaniacs”.

We would like to give special thanks to all the Sponsors (ELANCO, IDEXX, LETI PHARMA, MSD, BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM, VIRBAC, ECUPHAR, CEVA, BIOCLIN VET, Consejo Andaluz de Colegios Oficiales de Veterinarios and the Colegio Oficial de Veterinarios de Málaga) and to the members of the Scientific Committee for their active participation and to all the participants for their contributions.

Guadalupe Miró
President of LeishVet and the Organizing Committee
