Strategy for accelerated control of Japanese encephalitis in South East Asia


MMGH supported the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific in developing a guide for accelerating control of Japanese encephalitis (JE). The guide outlines regional targets, defines strategies and activities to accomplish these targets, and provides a framework for countries to develop national plans tailored to their situation. MMGH collaborated with the WHO Regional Office, country representatives and global experts to facilitate a meeting, draft the guidance and work towards an endorsed and funded strategy for JE control in the region.
