December 9-10, 2019, Singapore
Since first being identified in Malaysia and Singapore in 1999, the Nipah virus has gone on to cause a number of deadly outbreaks across South and Southeast Asia. In light of its epidemic potential and with no vaccines or treatments currently available, the zoonotic disease is listed on the WHO’s R+D Blueprint as a priority pathogen in need of urgent action.
To mark the 20th anniversary since the discovery of Nipah, an international scientific congress will be held to bring researchers and practitioners together to review the historic outbreaks, discuss the latest developments in diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics, and foster greater international collaboration.
