Further pursuit to standardize the management of important infections in the country

Board of Councils 2011

In 2011, under the leadership of Dr. Rontgene M. Solante, additional subcommittees have been created that was approved unanimously by the Board of Councils such as Influenza, Invasive Fungal Disease, HIV, Tetanus and Typhoid Fever. Together with the existing clinical practice guideline of the society, Dr. Solante also appropriated a budget for each CPG as it is the vision of the Society that all subcommittees will eventually be able to come up with clinical practice guidelines in order to strengthen its role in standardizing the management of important infections in the country.

Also, it was Dr. Solante who spearheaded a Strategic Planning and Team Building in 2012 to draw a blueprint on how the society sees itself in the next five years. A series of meetings were done to be able to finalize the Management Action Plan (MAP). Moreover, Dr. Solante has designed a membership assistance that may be a help to the membership in hospital and death assistance. This was subsequently reviewed by the board of councils under the leadership of Dr. Ludovico L. Jurao, Jr., the following year, 2013. It was then presented to the assembly during the Business Meeting in November 2013. During this time, the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine has been approved and accredited as a new training institution for Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.
