ISID's education programs seek to strengthen the specialty of Infectious Diseases globally, support the ongoing professional development of Infectious Disease practitioners, and improve clinical practice. We advance these goals through our meeting, the International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID), as well as our online learning platform, ISID's Knowledge Exchange.
International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID)
The leading international meeting on global infectious diseases, delivering a unique blend of basic science and clinical practice.
Meetings are held biennially in different regions of the world reflecting ISID’s recognition of the global burden of infectious diseases. As a result, the Congress is notable for the extraordinarily wide range of countries represented and the opportunities it affords for the close exchange of cutting-edge scientific knowledge and communication between colleagues from around the world.
Distinguished by innovative approaches to delivering evidence-based knowledge and a world-class scientific program presented by leading international experts who have first hand experience and knowledge of the conditions they discuss, the agenda ranges from regional disease priorities to global hot topics.
The Knowledge Exchange platform is an online resource that shares open-access educational modules, webinars, and interactive discussions. ISID’s online learning environment focuses on sharing evidence-based information for infectious disease management, control and prevention in resource-limited settings.
The content hosted on Knowledge Exchange serves as an enduring education resource for practitioners around the globe with a focus on low- and middle-income countries. The Knowledge Exchange shares critical infectious disease knowledge covering a range of global infectious disease priorities and provides content focused on career development and leadership skill-building.

Tune in to this live webinar on Wednesday, September 13, 2023 at 2:00 PM Eastern (11:00 AM Pacific) to hear from an international panel of renowned experts in RSV and vaccine science as they discuss:
Engaging the Global Community in HIV Prevention Through People-Centered Care
The World Health Organization (WHO) has tasked the global community with a goal of ending the HIV epidemic by 2030. One way to help meet this objective is through decreasing HIV transmission using HIV prevention methods, such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) medications.

Using Evidence-Based Guidelines for Personalized PrEP Initiation
Prevention of HIV transmission using pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a key component to ending the HIV epidemic. Recent updates in the clinical guidelines help guide clinicians' choices on medications based on patient-specific factors. Improve your knowledge and clinical acumen on PrEP initiation essentials with a bite-sized booster quiz designed for busy clinicians.
International Meeting on Emerging Diseases and Surveillance (The Meeting)
Emerging diseases are now, more than ever, at the center of the world’s attention. The realization that new infectious diseases may be recognized at any time, in any place, has dramatically raised awareness of our need to understand emerging pathogens.
This meeting embodies the One Health model of emerging diseases, recognizing the commonality of human, environmental, and animal health, asking:
- What are the most important emerging diseases threats?
- What biological, ecological, social and other factors lead to their emergence?
- How can we quickly detect their occurrence in order to prepare and respond in timely and appropriate ways?
At this meeting, diverse and world-renowned colleagues come together biennially to present new knowledge and breakthroughs on how to discover, detect, understand, prevent, and respond to outbreaks of global emerging threats.
