Workshop on strengthening preparedness and response to West Nile Virus infections

The workshop brought together 44 participants from European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) partner countries, EU Enlargement Countries and selected EU Member States. It was aimed at public health professionals actively working in the field of preparedness and/or response to WNV infections. The discussions were not just based on the human health perspectives, but also entomological and animal health perspectives.

The objective was to discuss the lessons learned from past WNV outbreaks based on after-action reviews (AARs), and assess the extent to which these have been implemented into concrete WNV management strategies.

The workshop focused on participating countries sharing their experiences in managing past WNV events, and a closer scrutiny of the WNV management processes. This included the challenges and successes in implementing improvements to WNV management strategies and identifying the key needs going forward.
