The 3rd International Symposium on ‘Streptococcus agalactiae’ Disease (ISSAD) 2023 is an opportunity for stakeholders across the Group B Strep community to get together and share to accelerate progress on Group B Strep.  Stakeholders from across the community, including ministries of health, implementing partners, academia, and donors are invited to attend.  In particular, participation from low- and middle-income countries is encouraged to ensure the voices of those most at harm from the disease are able to be heard. We will open online on 6th April 2023.
