We have now reached the end of Week 2. By now you should have a clearer understanding of how we prepare for and respond to outbreaks.

Next week we will look at responding to outbreaks now and in the future. We will explore new and continuing challenges in outbreak response including: who responds to outbreaks; key interventions; lessons learned; and what outbreak preparedness and response will look like in the future. We will also have the opportunity to watch experts in the field answer your questions from discussions over the last two weeks.

Next week’s activities are available to view now, but if you decide to review them early you may want to return to the comments and discussions while the week is live to see the perspectives of other learners and to offer your own.
