About the Congress

We are pleased to announce that ICMR-National Institute of Traditional Medicine and KAHER’s Dept. of Public Health and Dept. of Microbiology are jointly organizing the 28th National Congress of Parasitology, from 22nd-24th Feb 2018, at Belagavi, Karnataka on the theme “Challenges and Innovations in Controlling Parasitic Diseases”.

The Indian Society for Parasitology (ISP), established in 1973 under the Societies Act XXI, 1860, has the major objectives of bringing parasitologists of various disciplines under one umbrella to advance knowledge in this vital area concerning human and animal health. Over the years, the Society has carved a niche for itself by providing a common platform to research scientists, clinicians, field biologists, academicians and all others involved in parasitology or tropical medicine research to share and exchange their knowledge and observations.

Annual conferences, sponsored by national and international agencies, are organized by the ISP with a view to take stock of the current developments in parasitology and evolve strategies for the control and containment of parasitic diseases.

The event is going to be organized in the pristine city of Belagavi, which is a hub of education and medical care housing several institutions and universities.
