MediLabSecure Situation Analysis Study
The MediLabSecure Situation Analysis on integrated surveillance of arboviruses in the Mediterranean and Black Sea Region (MeSA Study) is being carried out by the MediLabSecure Public Health Working Group.
The MESA Study is a qualitative situational analysis involving human, animal and entomology sectors of vector borne disease surveillance in three countries of the MediLabSecure network : Serbia, Tunisia and Georgia.
The main objective of the Study is to describe how the collection, analysis and dissemination/exchange of information is organized within and between human, animal and entomological surveillance of arboviruses with the final aim of contributing to the integration of laboratory/clinical human, animal and entomological surveillance of arboviruses in the Mediterranean and Black Sea region and encourage inter-sectoral collaboration.
Lessons learned, success stories and main challenges in establishing a functional inter-sectoral collaboration and integration of surveillance in these three countries will be discussed in a Strategic Document to be shared with MediLabSecure Partners and other interested Institutions.
The study visit in Serbia took place from 5 to 7 July 2016, in Tunisia from 11 to 13 October. The last study visit took place in Georgia from December 13th to 15th 2016.
