Conference Details : The 15th ASCODD will be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh during 28-30 January 2020 with the theme: Typhoid, cholera, other enteric diseases and their relationship to nutritional disorders - Persisting challenges for low and middle-income countries LMICs in an era of humanitarian crisis. CONFERENCE DETAILS The theme and significance of the conference is centred on two major burdens of enteric bacterial diseases in this decade: #Cholera and #Typhoid which together cause 23 million episodes and 300,000 deaths globally. The bulk of this health challenge resides in Asia and Africa, and in humanitarian crises globally. In addition, growing antimicrobial resistance #AMR is raising the spectre that these two diseases could soon become untreatable with currently available drugs. HISTORY At the time when diarrhoea was a major killer of children and oral rehydration solution was just unfolding its miracles, it was recognised that the sharing of research findings would motivate young researchers to participate in the public health sector and tackle this challenge. Against this backdrop, the first-ever ASCODD was held in Dhaka and was organised by International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh icddr,b. ASCODD has emerged as a bridge between young researchers and global experts by facilitating knowledge sharing, ideas and research collaboration. The 1981 conference envisioned a wider geographical scope and participations from other Asian nations. Subsequently in 1983, National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases NICED, Kolkata, India joined the initiative along with Indian researchers. Since then ASCODD has been held biennially until 2012. After the 6th conference, the name was changed to Asian Conference on Diarrhoeal Disease and Nutrition, while keeping the same acronym as ASCODD.
