Back to the International Meeting of Leptospirosis

  • Share with other countries that are also facing outbreaks of leptospirosis the methodology developed for the study of risk stratification and analysis of driving factors conducted in Nicaragua. It is expected that it will serve as basis for the identification of risk areas of leptospirosis in other countries in Latin America.
  • Exchange practices between countries with experience in facing outbreaks of leptospirosis.
  • Discuss among participants and obtain recommendations on actions to predict, detect, prevent and respond to outbreaks of leptospirosis in risk areas and risk groups, similarly to what was developed for outbreaks during disaster situations by the Global Leptospirosis Environmental Action Network (GLEAN).
  • Collect and share brief information about the epidemiological situation and plans of action of the participating countries, as well as materials and websites of common interest, using a standard format for all countries.
  • Share the information obtained from the Forum and the International Meeting with other countries through the creation of a leptospirosis webpage in the PAHO-Washington, D.C website (Spanish and English).
