Call for LASID Meeting 2021 Venue


The Latin American Society for Immunodeficiencies (LASID) has the mission to promote awareness of primary immunodeficiencies (PID) in Latin America. As such, one of its major objectives is to promote medical education and interactions between the medical and scientific community, and to foster basic and clinical research in these diseases. The LASID biannual meeting is an educational initiative aimed to achieve these objectives and we have developed this guide in order to facilitate the process of nominating a host city and organizing the presentation of a venue for the next LASID Meeting to be held in October of 2015.

Our society had its foundations in the Latin American Group for Immunodeficiencies (LAGID) an interest group that was born in 1993 during the ALAI Congress in Santiago (Chile), and LAGID held its first meeting in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1994 (see table). Following that initiative, a number of LAGID meetings were held almost annually until 2009, when LAGID became LASID and the first LASID Congress was held in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia). The following table summarizes the different countries and cities that have hosted LAGID and LASID Meetings until the most recent in Santiago in October of 2013.
