PREPAREing for (Re-)Emerging Arbovirus Infections in Europe

29.03.2017 - 31.03.2017 All day

The aim of the course is to improve the participant’s knowledge of identification and management of arbovirus infections and outbreaks at local and European levels. The course is part of PREPARE, an EU funded partnership aimed at strengthening European preparedness for (re-)emerging infectious disease outbreaks. Course topics will include a review of arboviruses of clinical importance to Europe, including endemic and travel imported viruses. This will include an overview of symptomatology, diagnostics and interpretation of laboratory results and an update on prevention, vaccine and treatments. The course will also include an overview
of surveillance systems, European organizations, laboratories and clinical networks involved in surveillance, control and outbreak response and interactive sessions covering serology interpretation, case scenarios and outbreak response exercises. The course will be delivered by a range of European experts on arboviruses, through a dynamic mix of presentations, case scenarios and outbreak exercises.
