Dear colleagues,

WHO is conducting an online public consultation on monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of the Global Action Plan on AMR. This consultation is open until 17:00 CET 30 September 2017. Access the consultation here.

The Emerging Infections Task Force (EITaF) has published a new contribution about the emerging arbovirus, Oropouche virus, in Central and South America on its webpage. The virus is transmitted by the midge Culicoides paraensis and causes symptoms of fever, joint pain, and headache. Infection may occasionally lead to meningitis or meningoencephalitis. Due to similar symptomatology, Oropouche virus infection can be confused with dengue fever.
