Somewhere in Egypt, this group of Egyptian women were comparing their scientific findings during a meeting of the newly formed Eastern Mediterranean Acute Respiratory Infection Surveillance (EMARIS) Network, a regional network for standardized, and enhanced surveillance of severe acute respiratory illness, particularly influenza, in the Eastern Mediterranean Region.

“Influenza surveillance was established in Egypt in 1999, and has expanded throughout the period of CDC funding that began in 2009. Laboratory capacity has been enhanced, and the number of sites has increased. The Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP) collaborates with Naval Medical ResearchUnit-3 (NAMRU-3) in Cairo, and the regional World Health Organization (WHO) office, to enhance on-going surveillance activities, as well as collaboration with regional Ministries of Higher Education, the Global Disease Detection (GDD) and Response Program – Egypt has established the EMARIS Network."
