Fungal burden of disease in Korea: Data originally reported as a poster in TIMM 2013 conference and has now been published Huh 2017.
Personal comment on the major needs in South Korea which GAFFI should be addressing: Epidemiologic studies of fungal diseases should be performed to analyze the actual burden of fungal diseases more systematically. Cost-effectiveness of newer fungal agents needs to be evaluated.
