Regional Meeting & Technical Workshop in Public Health
July 4 - 6, 2017, Tunis, tunisia
The second Regional Meeting and technical workshop on public health of the MediLabSecure project will be held from July 4th to 6th 2017 at the Institut Pasteur in Tunis, Tunisia.
This multi-disciplinary meeting will addressed clinical, entomological, epidemiological, diagnostic as well as human and animal health aspects of Rift Valley fever (RVF) virus, which has been identified as a priority in this Region. This regional meeting will also be an opportunity to discuss current and common public health issues. For example, an update session about Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus has been scheduled.
A panel of international specialists were invited to give presentations on these topics. Transversal sessions and group activities on topics such as vector control and biorisk management will also be held.
To make the most out of this gathering from the Network representatives, the third MediLabSecure technical workshop on Public Health has been embedded into this regional meeting, and will focus on RVF risk assessment. This rapid risk assessment exercise will be carried out in a multisectoral manner with representatives of animal health, human health and public health institutions as well as medical entomologists involved.
Countries represented during this meeting will be Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
We are looking forward to meet the MediLabSecure Network members and regional stakeholders at this event!
