The second edition of this event maintained its purposes of updating knowledge and preparing healthcare’s professionals and the academic community in regard to the importance of parasitic diseases in humans and animals in the Brazilian context.

Thus, this event proposed a new context for epidemiology and parasitic diseases, including diagnosis and treatment, through oral presentations specialized in public policies and innovation in science and technology, aiming to adequately address the issue of parasitic zoonoses. Healthcare Education, Automated Diagnosis of Intestinal Parasites, WaterBorne and FoodBorne diseases were some of the topics discussed during the validity of this event.
