    Final Roundup for 2015;

    Flashback 2015 (Part 1) http://www.epid.gov.lk/web/images/pd...01-english.pdf
    Flashback 2015 (Part II) http://www.epid.gov.lk/web/images/pd...02-english.pdf

    This is the second in the series of two articles on
    the activities carried out by the Epidemiology
    Unit during the preceding year
    Year 2015 is a significant year as far as seasonal
    influenza was concerned. The country
    experienced a massive outbreak during the
    months of June, July and August resulting in 75
    influenza associated deaths and 14 maternal
    deaths.
    A health education campaign including
    TV spots, posters, road shows, lectures for
    health staff, publishing fact sheets on the Epidemiology
    Unit Website and distributing leaflets
    among general public on influenza prevention
    and control was launched. The circular on influenza
    prevention and control was revised to include
    latest facts on the disease. The high demand
    for antiviral (Oseltamivir) and personal
    protective equipment ( 95 N masks) was met
    without stock outs, while regulating it’s distribution
    by the Epidemiology Unit.
    Influenza surveillance system (ILI and SARI)
    was strengthened through continued services of
    surveillance officers (pre intern medical officers
    at SARI sites and the National Influenza CenterMRI),
    training staff at sentinel hospitals and
    maintaining adequate supplies of reagents for
    RTPCR at the MRI and visits to the sentinel hospitals
    by the Epidemiology Unit staff. The influenza
    surveillance system was critically reviewed
    by a team of members from the CDC Atlanta,
    USA.
