Welcome to FIDSSA

Federation of Infectious Diseases Societies of Southern Africa

An exciting and necessary development in clinical practice is the recent registration of Infectious Diseases as a sub-specialty in South Africa. With the establishment of training posts and increasing numbers of doctors attracted to this challenging and interesting field of practice, will have a major beneficial impact. Several members of the Federation are actively involved in the process.
