Jun 20, 2016 | News Releases

UNESCO has kindly issued an invitation to CBU members to participate in a two-day workshop “Inform, Engage, Investigate: Lessons learned from Zika outbreak”, in Panama City, Panama, from 14 to 15 July 2016.


The workshop, to be conducted in Spanish, is being conducted in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC).

The main objective of the workshop is promoting coordinated action among UN agencies humanitarian actors and the media to prevent and end crises such as health epidemics.

The workshop builds on the recent Latin American and Caribbean radio campaign which used public service announcements (PSAs) on three topics to promote understanding of what individuals can do to protect themselves, their families and their communities from the Zika virus.
