Workshop on the Hepatitis E (HEV) virus technical report
Scientists, clinicians and policy advisors from EU member states took part in a workshop in March 2018 to encourage cooperation among countries in science and policy-making relating to HEV.
Together with The Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) (Netherlands) and The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) (Germany), we organised a workshop to improve the scientific understanding of HEV. This included sharing approaches on HEV controls within Europe and across the food supply chain.
The workshop, held on 26 and 27 March 2018, aimed to:
- identify evidence gaps and find scientific areas where we can work collaboratively in ongoing or future research activities within the theme
- identify policy interventions that would assist in mitigating risks to human health
