A tool to facilitate the implementation of the yellow fever strategy in high-risk countries.
The strategy to “Eliminate Yellow fever Epidemics” (EYE) is a comprehensive, multi-component approach aiming at addressing the emerging global threat due to yellow fever’s changing epidemiology, resurgence of mosquitoes and risk of international spread. EpiLinks contributes developing a toolkit for high-risk endemic countries to support the implementation of the EYE strategy. Twelve modules compile guidance notes, check lists and Gantt charts for preparing, implementing and monitoring EYE-related activities. This toolkit describes the three EYE objectives:
- Protect at-risk population (no epidemic)
- Prevent international spread (no exportation)
- Contain outbreak rapidly (no sustained transmission)
