19TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
ON INFECTIOUS DISEASES
Global Challenges - Local Solutions
CANCELLED FOR SEPTEMBER 2020
Due to the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic and the safety concerns surrounding mass gatherings, the organizers of the 19th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) have made the difficult decision to cancel the Congress scheduled for September 10-13, 2020 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We are currently working with our colleagues in Malaysia to look at future ICID dates and arrangements.
Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre
The International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID) is collaborating with the Malaysian Society of Infectious Diseases and Chemotherapy (MSIDC) for the 19th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID).
The 19th ICID features an expanded range of sessions by bringing the One Health aspect to the world of clinical infectious diseases and microbiology. The One Health Concept recognizes the commonality of human, environmental and animal health and is critical to understanding, managing and preventing emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases globally. From antimicrobial resistance, Nipah virus and rabies to the effects of climate change, loss of biodiversity, and political instability on infectious diseases, looking through the One Health lens will provide invaluable insights across species and specialties. Connect with colleagues from a wide range of countries and specialties to exchange knowledge, create new ideas and start collaborations.
