Welcome Message by Chairman

Dear colleagues,

It gives me immense pleasure to invite you to 2nd Gulf Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (GCCMID 2017) which will be held in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain on 1st – 4th November 2017.

GCCMID 2017 aims to provide you with an enriching scientific and educational gathering in the region which will provide the latest advances in research and practice through presentations, workshops and discussions with in-depth high quality scientific contents in the field of microbiology and infectious disease. Organized by The Saudi Society for Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (SSMMID) in collaboration with Bahrain Medical Society (BMS), The European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), Saudi Pediatric Infectious Disease Society and Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS).

I believe that the congress will provide exceptional opportunity for everyone to share & acquire knowledge and experience in a wide spectrum of topics that are related to microbiology and infectious disease and infection control and gives the chance to connect with the people and innovative educators.

I look forward to welcoming you to GCCMID 2017.

Hail M. Al-Abdely, MD
