Welcome to 2017


The Pre-congress of the Annual Scientific Sessions of the SLCM for 2017

The Pre-congress of the Annual Scientific Sessions of the SLCM for 2017 will take the form of the 2nd South Asian Melioidosis Congress.

This will be held at the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel on 29th and 30th August. As its name implies this is the second Congress on Melioidosis to be held in this region, involving countries like India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Pakistan, to increase awareness about melioidosis. The disease is frequently mis-or under-diagnosed in the region and revealing the hidden burden of infection requires the co-operation of a network of microbiologists, epidemiologists, infectious disease specialists, and public health personnel.
