Captured on May 31, 2014, during an encephalitis cluster investigation, Bangladeshi Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) fellow, Dr. Samsad Rabbani Khan was interviewing a a man, from a family with a child ill with Japanese Encephalitis (JE). This man had been exposed to the affected child, and subsequently developed similar neurologic symptoms.
”Acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) is a clinical condition caused by infection with Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) or other infectious and noninfectious causes. A confirmed etiology is generally not required for the clinical management of AES.”
The FETP trains workers on the ground to help countries build sustainable capacity for detecting and responding to health threats. The program develops in-country expertise so that disease outbreaks can be detected locally and prevented from spreading.
