The International Conference on Dengue and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever 2016 will be held from 24-26 February 2016 at The Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The theme of this conference is “Dengue: To Stem the Tide”.
This international conference will bring together renowned scientists, clinicians, researchers and scholars with a common interest and concern in the global dengue situation, and will provide an opportunity to professionals in the field of health and allied health sciences to share latest research findings, build new relationships and to discuss dengue and its management, prevention and control strategies.
The conference is organized by the Epidemiology Unit, Ministry of Health, Sri Lanka in collaboration with the Centre for Global Health Research at the University of Umeå, Sweden with its14 partners from Europe, Asia and South America and the Partnership for Dengue Control (PDC) of the Fondation Mérieux (FMx), France (www.fondation-merieux.org/partnership-for-dengue-control).
The broad aim of the conference is to celebrate the end of the European Community’s DengueTools project ( www.denguetools.net) and to translate this information directly into improved tools for surveillance, better diagnosis, prevention as well as prediction and prevention of the spread of Dengue to previously uninfected regions (including Europe) in the context of climate change. The local organising committee is working hard to make this event an ideal platform of learning and collaboration. Please join us for what we hope will be a significant milestone of international events in dengue in 2016 and follow us at the website for more information on the conference and the Paradise Island of Sri Lanka, the hosting nation.
