This infectious diseases conference will have renowned speakers from around the world, and is unique in that there will be no pharmaceutical sponsorship. Instead, the main sponsor is the Courage Fund – which was initially set up in 2003 as fund-raising effort to provide relief to healthcare works involved in and victims of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic that year, but which now supports charitable and educational purposes for healthcare workers and  those in the wider Singapore community that are affected by infectious diseases.

Do sign up (and submit research abstracts) if interested!
