Other TitlesJakarta, Indonesia, 27-30 September 2010
AbstractThe process of risk assessment is increasingly being recognized as a distinct discipline that involves a rigorous and structured regimen to identify hazards, analyse and/or evaluate associated risks, and determine appropriate ways to control or eliminate risk. In accordance with strengthening the core capacities related to the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005 in the WHO South-East Asia Region, a Regional Workshop on Risk Assessment and Management of Public Health Events was held from 27 to 30 September 2010 in Jakarta, Indonesia. This was the first regional-level workshop on the issue and aimed at training human resources to improve national capacity for risk assessment and the management of potential public health events of national and international concern. This report outlines the process that was adopted in conducting the workshop and the deliberations in it that are likely to facilitate the organizing of similar workshops at the regional, national and subnational levels.
