Latest on malaria, dengue, radiation threats, bedbugs, cholera in Haiti at ASTMH Annual Meeting
Date:9/9/2011

The 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) -- the largest of its kind in the world -- will bring together in one place global experts who are battling a wide range of bacteria, viruses, parasites and other pathogens that each year kill or sicken hundreds of millions of people.

Scientists, clinicians and other experts in tropical medicine and global health will present new insights and research on a wide range of critical issues in preventing and controlling infectious diseases, including combating the unexpected and rapid rise of cholera in Haiti; the global consequences of radiation emergencies; the hunt for new treatments for a less deadly, but still insidious and rising, form of malaria; a new vaccine for dengue fever -- a disease that may be regaining a foothold in the United States; the stubborn burden of infectious disease among poor Americans; and detection and control of resurgent bed bugs.

    Paul Farmer, director of Partners In Health
    Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University's Earth Institute & Special Advisor to the UN Secretary General
