Mid-Term Project Meeting
DEcember 15-17th Institut Pasteur (Paris)
The mid-term meeting and technical workshop on public health was the opportunity to bring together the leaders of the MediLabSecure work packages and 82 delegates from the partner countries. In addition, 33 representatives from otherEU-funded projects and relevant stakeholders were invited to share their expertise.
During this 3-days event, invited speakers shared the latest breakthroughs regarding West Nile virus, as an example of a zoonotic vector-borne disease of concern in the Region, and they gave an overview of the disease epidemiology and surveillance.
Moreover, we took the chance of this gathering of representatives from all sectors of the project to engage in a public health technical workshop on West Nile fever risk assessment with a One Health approach.
At the end of the meeting, parallel sessions within each speciality allowed for in-depth discussions among the participants on technical subjects related to the project aims, tools and outcomes.
This mid-term meeting has resulted in an improved understanding of ongoing and future activities of MediLabSecure, and it will contribute to the fine-tuning of the forthcoming actions within the project.
