SECID Risk Management workshop, 6-7 July, Budva, Montenegro


SECID-MECIDS participants, Risk Management workshop July, 2015

On 6 -7th July 2015, CORDS in collaboration with the SECID network, organised a 2 day workshop on Risk Management, focusing on the areas of Risk Assessment, Risk Communication and notification under the IHR (2005).  The workshop was attended by over 30 participants from South East European Health and MECIDS networks, Kosovo and Slovenia. The workshop was highly interactive, with participants working in groups to engage in a number of guided exercises to identify the ideal conditions,  needed to effectively recognise, assess and report an infectious disease ‘event’. Day 2 focused on translating insights from the previous day into detailed country and cross border region action  plans. This workshop is the first in a series of workshops/simulation exercises across CORDS’ 6 networks. Participants welcomed the innovative approach used to develop interventions to improve Risk Management in their respective countries and look forward to consolidating their action plans for implementation.
