Expanded save the date: ASTMH Annual Meeting
Date:11/13/2008

Nearly 2,900 physicians and scientists from institutions around the world such as the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health will meet at the 57th American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene's Annual Meeting Dec. 7-11, in New Orleans to discuss the latest research on infectious and emerging diseases and global health threats.

Meeting highlights include:

"Airport Malaria" Cause for Concern in the U.S.: "Airport malaria" is a term coined by researchers to explain the more recent spread of malaria to areas such as the United States and Europe. Due to warmer climate changes, scientists believe that mosquitoes are able to flourish in new territories, which were previously not as welcoming. Airport malaria is transmitted when a mosquito infected with the disease bites a human within the vicinity (usually one mile or less) of an international airport. As major U.S. cities with a large presence of international air traffic, such as New York and Los Angeles, encounter warmer climate changes they create a more welcoming environment where these infected mosquitoes can survive. It is estimated that malaria affects 300-500 million people per year. Presenter: James H. Diaz, M.D., program director for Environmental and Occupational Health at Louisiana State University.

Applying Traditional "Supply and Demand" Business Principles to Treat Infectious Diseases Worldwide: Treating infectious diseases while facing escalating costs continues to pose worldwide challenges, with one of the main issues being the ability to provide an adequate supply of drugs to treat infectious diseases. While this may sound simple, ensuring a sufficient supply of effective drugs to each country that needs them remains a challenge until the demand for those drugs is accurately predicted and understood. A new and improved scientific method to forecast the demand for a key anti-malarial treatment may be the k
