Emerging pathogens such as Zika; the meningitis outbreak in Italy and Europe; tuberculosis, a disease that remains a threat; the importance of vaccines, not only for children, but at all ages; vaccination for chronically ill patients: these are just some of the topics that will be debated at the 1st International Congress of the World Association for Infectious Diseases and Immunological Disorders (http://www.waidid.org) that is being held in Milan and will end tomorrow, February 20th.
