The International Symposium on ‘Streptococcus agalactiae’ Disease (ISSAD) is a global conference on Group B Strep (GBS) that runs bi-annually and aims to link multiple stakeholders’ latest science to multiple stakeholders accelerate change whilst building a community, especially of next-generation researchers and implementers. The inaugural conference took place in 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa. This year’s event, 2021 (moved from 2020 due to pandemic), will be primarily virtual, streamed from London, and working with WHO to launch the first global GBS report.
