The 2nd South Asian Melioidosis Congress, to be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka on 29th and 30th August 2017, is the second Congress 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. Revealing the hidden burden of infection requires the co-operation of a network of microbiologists, epidemiologists, infectious disease specialists, and public health personnel. The 2nd South Asian Melioidosis Congress will allow researchers and clinical personnel meet and learn from global experts on the disease and develop collaborations within and between countries in the region and groups overseas with the ultimate goal of reducing the morbidity and mortality of this potentially fatal infection.
