2nd South Asian Meloidosis Congress

29.08.2017 - 30.08.2017 All day

The 2nd South Asian Melioidosis Congress aims to raise awareness of melioidosis in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Pakistan. The disease is often missed or under-diagnosed in these countries and revealing the hidden burden of infection requires the co-operation of microbiologists, epidemiologists, infectious disease specialists and public health personnel.

The 2nd SAMC will allow researchers and clinical personnel to meet and learn from global experts on the disease and develop collaborations within and between countries in the region and groups overseas with the ultimate goal of reducing the morbidity and mortality of this potentially fatal infection.
