FIDEC is a nonprofit organization started in the United States in 2001 by Doctor Daniel Stamboulian. It is made up of physicians, scientists, and other healthcare workers from Latin America, the United States, and Armenia.
To contribute towards improving the health of the population in emerging countries through the proper prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.
FIDEC professionals form working groups focused on specific branches of infectious diseases, such as infant, teenage, and adult vaccination (against the flu or influenza, pneumococcal pneumonia, hepatitis, shingles and herpes zoster, human papilloma virus or HPV, and polio, among others); nutrition, hygiene and food safety; bone and joint infections; and travel medicine. Every group's efforts rest on four founding pillars:
FIDEC was born as a natural outgrowth of Fundación Centro de Estudios Infectológicos (FUNCEI). This organization was created in 1987 by Doctor Daniel Stamboulian and is headquartered in the City of Buenos Aires. Today, FIDEC not only extends the work started by FUNCEI to other countries with specific needs in the field of infectious diseases, but also actively supports the actions of FUNCEI in Argentina.
In recognition of the brilliant career of the founder and chair of these organizations, Fundación Stamboulian was established in Buenos Aires and has been another pillar of these fruitful endeavors.
In Uruguay, FIDEC is also represented by FUNCEI, which is registered as a legal entity in the Bureau of Legal Entities by decree of the Education and Culture Ministry of that country.
Since its inception, FIDEC runs healthcare and educational programs in Armenia. As this work had been growing and expanding into several regions of the country, in 2008, FIDEC decided to establish a local branch —FIDEC Armenia— with its own working groups and an office in downtown Yerevan, the capital of Armenia.
