The ASEF Public Health Network published the report of its WorkshopRisk Communications for Public Health Emergencies: What to Learn from Real-life Events held in October 2014 in Oslo, Norway. The report elaborates on 3 presentations of real-life public health emergencies in recent years: the Christchurch earthquake in 2011; SARS (2000), H5N1 and H1N1 (2009) in Singapore; and Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014. The report also documents main points from working group discussions and mock press conference statements from a simulation exercise.
