Fungal burden of disease in Indonesia: View poster from ISHAM 2015, view slide presentation.
How you have helped GAFFI: By estimating fungal burden in my country (Indonesia), by doing research on mycotic diseases, active in medical mycology organization in Indonesia and Asia Pacific
Personal comment on the major needs in Indonesia which GAFFI should be addressing: Diagnostic laboratory for mycotic diseases is very limited. It is necessary to develop a program to disseminate that capabilities. To improve doctor’s awareness to mycotic diseases would be very helpful. In addition, antifungal availability is also limited.
