Infectious Diseases in Singapore

Despite being a developed country with high standards of living and an excellent healthcare infrastructure, the threat of infectious diseases remains ever present in our country. This pertains not only to global outbreaks of pathogens such as SARS or avian influenza, but also to more insidious and less publicized infections caused by hospital drug-resistant micro-organisms as well as regional diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and melioidosis.
 
The Society of Infectious Disease (Singapore) was established more than a decade ago to enable individuals with an interest in infectious diseases to come together. It also aims to educate both health care professionals and the general public as well as to foster a greater and balanced awareness of the microbial world.
