PREPAREing for (Re-)Emerging Arbovirus Infections in Europe – held in Bucharest, March 2018
Of interest to APPRISE stakeholders: presentations for this course are now available at the PREPARE website.
“The aim of the course was to improve the participant’s knowledge of identification and management of arbovirus (arthropod-borne virus) infections and outbreaks at local and European levels.
Course topics included a review of arboviruses of importance to Europe, including endemic and travel-imported viruses, an overview of symptomatology, diagnostics and interpretation of laboratory results and an update on prevention, vaccine and treatments for these viruses.”
The course was part of the EU-PREPARE partnership, aimed at strengthening European preparedness for (re-)emerging infectious disease outbreaks. The course was co-organized by ESCMID Study Group for Infections in Travellers and Migrants (ESGITM), Erasmus MC: University Medical Center Rotterdam, and University of Oxford.
