Dear WHO Mycology and FPPL Advisory Group Members and colleagues,

We are happy to invite you to a webinar that promises to be an insightful exploration of “Fungal Diseases- Global Challenges and Opportunities.” The details are as follows:

  • Webinar Title: Fungal Diseases – Global Challenges and Opportunities
  • Date: 18 September 2023 Time: 15:00 – 16:00 (Geneva Time)


This webinar holds particular significance as it falls within the US CDC Fungal Disease Awareness Week (FDAW), scheduled from September 18th to 22nd, 2023. This week marks a special occasion for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and its partners to raise awareness about fungal diseases and antifungal resistance, and foster a collective effort to ‘Think Fungus’.

To commence this awareness week on a global scale, a joint CDC-WHO webinar has been organized to offer an in-depth perspective on fungal diseases, and challenges related to antifungal resistance, and the ongoing initiatives to combat them. Your presence and participation in this webinar would greatly contribute to the dissemination of knowledge and collaborative efforts in this critical domain.


We kindly request that you help spread the word about this webinar by sharing the attached invite with your networks, societies, and colleagues. Your support in promoting this event would be invaluable in ensuring its success and reaching a wider audience interested in addressing fungal diseases.

Here you will find the official webinar invitation page for your convenience (you can find the registration link for the Webinar on the same page).


Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or require further information.

We look forward to your participation and appreciate your assistance in extending this invitation to a broader audience.

Best regards,

Hatim (on behalf of the WHO IRC Unit and the US CDC Mycotic Diseases Branch teams)
