Paritosh K. Biswas, ProMED moderator for the South Asia network, and professor at Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University in Chittagong, Bangladesh, was honored at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)’s International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases (ICEID) in Atlanta last month.
The ICEID Leaders Program was created over a decade ago (as a component of ICEID 2008) to promote global health partnerships and collaboration in the area of infectious disease prevention by increasing ICEID participation by public health leaders from resource-limited countries. Selected through a competitive process and representing ministries of health, other health and research institutions, and nongovernmental organizations, 13 individuals were welcomed as the ICEID 2018 Leaders in Atlanta in August 2018.
