Ending Pandemics Director, Nomita Divi, recently ran a workshop in partnership with Sandia National Laboratories. The purpose of this workshop was for the eight countries in South Asia to develop a list of priority diseases for regional surveillance. Held in Paro, Bhutan, this meeting also trained participants on the PREP tool for exercise design which enables preparedness to be used regionally, as well as for their own national contexts. Key deliverables for the next year which emerged from this workshop include a network website and a repository of country capacities, disease factsheets for priority diseases, webinars for regional learning, and regular quarterly calls.
