CDC-Indonesia’s Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) Orientation in Jakarta

Last week Health Security Partners supported the implementation of CDC-Indonesia’s Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) Orientation in Jakarta. The training brought together medical and laboratory professionals from provincial primary healthcare facilities which were selected to be new ILI sentinel surveillance sites. The orientation focused on sharing comprehensive information related to Indonesia’s ILI sentinel surveillance system and recording-reporting system, as well as flu vaccination awareness and data quality management. Frequent trainings like these are essential to build a nation’s capacity to help prevent, diagnose, and control outbreaks of ILI.
