13th ICID - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia- June 19-22, 2008
  Held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

Welcome to the 13th ICID Website!

Kuala Lumpur is the exciting venue selected for the 13th International Congress on Infectious Diseases in June 2008. Sponsored by the International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID), a vibrant organization committed to international health, the meeting will continue the pattern of overwhelming successes in recent years in Lisbon, Cancun, Singapore, and Buenos Aires.
Today the ISID has over 20,000 members from more than 120 countries. We host ProMED-mail, the vast international surveillance program for emerging diseases with 40,000 active participants and 10,000 website hits a day. ProMED-mail identified the SARS epidemic two weeks before its global recognition. Our International Journal of Infectious Diseases and Guide to Infection Control in the Hospital—now in eight languages with 50,000 copies given free to health care workers in the developing world—continue to distinguish us. Furthermore, the ISID Small Grants and Fellowship awards provide support for scientists engaged in cutting edge research.

Our meeting in Kuala Lumpur hosted by the Ministry of Health, Malaysia will again welcome delegates from over 100 countries. The program will include plenary talks by world renowned experts in the science of infectious diseases and important topics critically presented by international luminaries in our field. Moreover, there will be great opportunities to spend time with leaders in the field, exchange ideas and develop collaborations with scientists from distinguished Medical Centers around the globe. All who are committed to the prevention and control of infections worldwide will find this a compelling meeting that should not be missed.
Founded in 1857, Kuala Lumpur is the legislative capital city of Malaysia. Visitors will see the diverse Malaysian culture blended with evocative British colonial buildings, the midnight lamps of Petaling Street Nightmarket and the PETRONAS Towers. I look forward to meeting you in person in Kuala Lumpur in June 2008.
Richard P. Wenzel, M.D., M.Sc.
President, International Society for Infectious Diseases
