Dear Members and Colleagues
Greetings from the Teerthanker Mahaveer University!
On behalf of Organizing Committee, it gives us immense pleasure to invite you to the 4TH UP & UK Chapter TROPACON 2019 being organized by Department of Microbiology, Medical College & Research Centre, Teerthanker Mahaveer University, Moradabad (U.P.) scheduled on October 18-19, 2019. The conference will be about "Vector Borne Parasite: Can We Overcome It?" on October 19, 2019 alongwith a pre-conference workshop on "Clinical Discussion on various Parasitic Diseases" on October 18, 2019.
The end of the monsoons in India signal a welcome turn in the climate. While the drop in temperature brings relief, the spike in vector-borne diseases invariably turns into a public health nightmare. Many vector-borne diseases transmitted by arthropods and animals and prevalent in India and these have emerged as a serious public helath problem. The major VBDs in India are malaria, filariasis, dengue, chikungunya and Japanese encephalitis transmitted by mosquitoes and visceral leishmanisis by sand flies. Visceral leishmaniasis and lymphatic filariasis (LF) are endemic and persisting causing considerable morbidity. Malaria occurs in epidemic form almost on an annual basis in some part of the country or the other. About 1-2 million new cases of malaria and about 1000 deaths occur every year. Some neglected tropical diseases like LF that affects the poorest sections of society is ranked by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the second most common cause of long-term disability, after mental illness. Therefore, there is an inevitable need to discuss the ideas of Microbiologists, Parasitologists, Infectious disease specialist, clinicians and environmentalist on how to overcome the prevalent scenario of these vector borne parasites.
We believe that this conference will provide excellent platform to all the professionals to exchange the ideas and research interest in field of vector borne parasitic diseases of public health importance. We look forward for your active participation to make this conference a success.

Indian Academy of Tropical Parasitology was started in the year 2002 with the aim and objective of promoting research activities in the field of parasitology and covering basic and applied aspects of protozoology, helminthology and entomology of tropical importance and which are of interest to medical investigators, veterinary practitioners, zoologist and others with special interest in tropical parasitology The association plans to conduct regular CME programmes to benefit the research workers and the scholars working in the field of tropical parasitology. The academy provides a forum for presentation and publication of research activities in these fields through conferences and journal of the academy. The research activities are strongly encouraged amongst the members of the academy through scholarships, prizes and awards during the annual conference.
UP & UK chapter of IATP was founded by Dr Ujjala Ghoshal with an aim to bring together doctors, academicians, scientists and scholars in the area of Parasitology, from Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, who will interact, exchange ideas, learn and develop strategies for early diagnosis of parasitic diseases and control measures. We are very much confident that chapter will prove an excellent platform for interaction among students, medical microbiologists and Parasitologists working in various medical colleges and research institutes across UP & UK. This will promote exchange of ideas and research interest in parasitic disease of public health importance.
