Third SAARC Epidemiology Networking (SAARC EpiNet) Meeting
Following the recommendations of the first consultative epidemiology and laboratory networking meeting held in July 2011 in Kathmandu, an epidemiology networking meeting was conducted in August 2013 in Paro, Bhutan entitled ‘Second SAARC Regional Epidemiology Networking Meeting or the SAARC EpiNet meeting” during which the draft SAARC-EpiNet forum proposal along with the Terms of Reference (TOR) for the network were developed. A rationale and mechanism for disease information sharing between the MSs was also developed in the same meeting.All the relevant meeting recommendations were then put up to the respective Chief Veterinary Officers (CVOs) which were endorsed during the Special SAARC CVO session in August 2015 in Bangkok. To reinforce the past efforts and take forward the process, the third SAARC EpiNet meeting was held from 2-3 February 2016 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The meeting facilitated sharing of information and networking among the national epidemiology focal points and or participants from the MSs. The meeting enabled the development of the road map for the operationalization of the SAARC EpiNet forum and taking of ownership of the forum by the MSs. #FAO #SAARC_EPIDEMIOLOGY_NETWORKING #2016
