Conference theme: Controlling communicable diseases – mobilising evidence, action and partnerships

The Conference theme “will cover persistent and emerging issues for infectious disease control in Australia and the region. These issues include emergence or re-emergence of infectious agents, complex outbreaks, resistant microorganisms, genomics, and effective interventions, along with high rates of disease in rural and remote Australia. The theme highlights the importance of the generation and transfer of evidence into policy and practice and invites an exploration of alternative forms of western scientific evidence, such as Indigenous knowledge systems.”
