Site and Background

CIDEIM (www.cideim.org.co) is a non-profit, public-private non-profit association dedicated to biomedical research in infectious diseases, the development of research capacity and technical and scientific services. In response to current health priorities, research in CIDEIM includes multidisciplinary investigation of leishmaniosis and emerging problems such as syphilis, dengue and other arbovirus transmitted by Aedes aegypti and drug resistant malaria, MDR and XDR tuberculosis, ecology and control of vectors of leishmaniosis, malaria and dengue.
