1st Borneo Tropical Diseases Congress
Currently attending the 1st Borneo Tropical Diseases Congress, held at the Tanjung Aru Resort in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia. This 2-day event is organised by the Infectious Diseases Society Kota Kinabalu Sabah, which is currently led by Dr. Timothy William – an infectious diseases physician who has published extensively on malaria and other tropical diseases while maintaining an extremely busy clinical practice.
As might be expected, the first day’s sessions were mostly about malaria, both human (Plasmodium vivax and to a lesser extent, P. falciparum) and monkey (P. knowlesi).
The conference venue was packed, with more than 100 participants from all over Malaysia, and also from the region.
