SIREVA II: Improving Surveillance and Characterization of Meningococcal Disease in Latin America and the Caribbean Region

Phase II: Detection, Risk-Assessment, Information and Response

Since 2008, the Pan American Health and Education Foundation (PAHEF) began collaborating with technical experts at the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) to strengthen successful regional surveillance systems such as the Antimicrobial Resistance Network or the Surveillance System for the Bacterial Agents Responsible for Pneumonia and Meningitis (SIREVA II), which is continuing to collect relevant laboratory and epidemiological data on Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Neisseria meningitidis. The real extent of its devastation—the financial cost and the cost of lives—has yet to be truly identified—and you and your company can help us.

PAHEF is seeking more than $2 million (one or more donors) in funding for the next phase of the project to strengthen the clinical, epidemiological, and laboratory-based surveillance of meningococcal disease in Latin America and the Caribbean for SIREVA II, Phase II.
