The Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases view on infectious diseases challenges in 2016 and beyond
This year, 2016, is a historic year for the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID), being the 40th anniversary of the formation of the society. It is an opportunity not only to celebrate our achievements in infectious diseases and microbiology over the past 4 decades but also to anticipate future challenges. Principal among these are antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the emergence or re-emergence of previously controlled or unrecognised diseases.
