Under the theme “Unity in Diversity: Global Partnerships in Melioidosis,” our congress aims to bring together people from across the world to strengthen existing relationships and foster new connections. We have a dynamic program that covers the diverse aspects of melioidosis including global and regional epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment, immunology and pathogenesis, environmental determinants, bacterial genomics, public health, and vaccine development.

 

Your support will contribute to the shared vision of the International Melioidosis Network in raising awareness of melioidosis globally and searching for solutions to reduce the burden of disease in endemic areas.

About the World Melioidosis Congress

Melioidosis, a potentially fatal infectious disease caused by the bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei is primarily found in tropical regions globally. The bacterium typically resides in soil and water, entering the body through breaks in the skin, inhalation, or ingestion. Its prevalence is closely linked to environmental factors such as heavy rainfall and flooding. Recognising the urgent need for collaboration and research in combating this disease, the International Melioidosis Network was established over a decade ago and its primary face to face forum is the World Melioidosis Congress, which has been occurring every 3 years since 1994.

 

This gathering brings together 200+ leading experts and researchers in the field from across the world to exchange knowledge, share advancements, and collectively work towards better understanding, prevention, and treatment of melioidosis. Darwin, Northern Territory Australia was selected for the 10th World Melioidosis Congress, 2024.
