    Past Conferences

    At the time when diarrhoea was a major killer of children and oral rehydration solution was just unfolding its miracles, it was recognised that the sharing of research findings would motivate young researchers to participate in the public health sector and tackle this challenge. 

    Against this backdrop, the first-ever ASCODD was held in Dhaka and was organised by International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b). The 1981 conference envisioned a wider geographical scope and participations from other Asian nations. Subsequently in 1983, National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases (NICED), Kolkata, India joined the initiative along with Indian researchers. Since then ASCODD has been held biennially until 2012. After the 6th conference, the name was changed to Asian Conference on Diarrhoeal Disease and Nutrition, while keeping the same acronym as ASCODD.

    The past thirteen conferences took place in eight Asian countries covering Bangladesh (3), India (2), Thailand (2), Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Indonesia (2) and Philippines. This year, 14th ASCODD has been scheduled for Kochi, India during 30 October – 01 November, 2017 with the theme of “Saving lives: innovations and solutions for diarrhoeal diseases, enteric fever and malnutrition”.
