Are you interested in knowing how to control the spread of emergent viruses such as these? This course, delivered by Raquel Medialdea-Carrera who worked in Africa and South America during the well mediatised recent outbreaks, will discuss the origin of these epidemics, the associated health and social effects, the public health measures that need to be taken and state-of-the-art of the research on epidemics.
