20th World Sterilization Congress




Dear colleague,

You are cordially invited to participate in the 20th World Sterilization Congress.

Together with the scientific committee of the WFHSS, this congress will focus on sharing knowledge on each level of sterilization and for each partner in the process. From scientific research bringing the possibilities to a higher level, to practical cases for CSSD technicians to reveal how much influence they have on the end product of the CSSD. All subjects will be covered and recognizable for the delegates. The Netherlands will share their long history of knowledge and experience with the rest of the world and would like to discuss insights from all over the world. The 20th World Sterilization Congress in 2019 will be definitely a reason to come to the Netherlands. Not only to experience and enjoy the scientific program but also to celebrate this 20th WFHSS congress and the 20th anniversary of vDSMH and the 50th anniversary of SVN. The congress will take place in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The Hague is a beautiful city behind the dunes, full of history, royalty and museums, and is only 30 minutes away from two international airports by public transport.

We look forward to welcoming you in The Hague in October 2019!

Harry Oussoren, President vDSMH
Tom Pereboom, President SVN
