Venue: SIUT, Karachi, Pakistan
The Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Society of Pakistan (MMIDSP) is holding its 16th annual conference at Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT), Karachi on February 21-23, 2019. The theme of the conference is “Infectious Diseases: Where Are We Today?” Infectious disease is closely tied to preventive medicine. Pakistan has to fight on two fronts, poverty and bad governance leading to increasing threat of epidemics as well as a rising menace of antibiotic resistance. Water borne, blood borne and vector borne diseases are on the rise. We need strong collaborative efforts on both diagnostic and management fronts with concrete suggestions from all concerned authorities to combat the potential of epidemics in the future. Stakeholders from government departments and health sectors from federal, provisional, and regional levels are being invited to work together.
