We are happy to report that since ECCMID 2021, we have been able to support 131 attendees and speakers from Low- and Lower-middle income countries to participate in ECCMID 2021 and 2022. We welcomed many attendees fro the first time to ECCMID supporting them where they would have not been able to attend otherwise. We are excited to be able to further ESCMID's mission of promoting and supporting research, education, training, and good medical practice across the globe.
