Multisectoral Risk Assessment Exercise

January 21,2020 - Dakar (Senegal)

During the first Regional Meeting of the second phase of the MediLabSecure project held in Dakar, Senegal, a Multisectoral Risk Assessment (MRA) exercise was carried out with representatives from all sectors (human and animal virology, medical entomology, public health and veterinary services, modelling and early warning tool) involved. Eight countries from Maghreb and Sahel regions participated in the exercise : Algeria, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Senegal and Tunisia.

This exercise was conceived to foster small group discussion on the status of Rift Valley Fever (RVF) surveillance in the region and to assess level of risk at country level with the support of the methodology applied by FAO for the Risk Assessment for RVF in Niger (March 2017).

The goal of this exercise was:

  • To enhance knowledge and capacity on MRA for RVF
  • To make the participants aware of RA methodologies to be applied at national level
  • To practice multi-sectoral collaboration for risk assessments that require exchange of information, expertise and experience

For this new edition, a ToT approach was adopted aiming at consolidating capacities and support sustainability. Indeed, MediLabSecure Focal Points who have already taken part in the previous MRA Exercise on RVF in Tunis (July 2017) have been involved in the development and execution of the Exercise in Dakar.
