ASEF Public Health Network (PHN) will launch its 1st training initiative on Risk Communications for Public Health Emergencies. Designed for front-line government representatives in-charge of risk communications, it aims to cover the following topics:

  • principles of Emergency Risk Communications (ERC)
  • use of social media for effective communication

Risk Communications is 1 of the 8 core functions of the International Health Regulations (IHR), which all WHO Member States are required to comply with. Increased understanding and promotion of Risk Communications for Public Health Emergencies will contribute to strengthening ASEM Partners' capacities towards the fulfilment of IHR's core capacity requirments. Further, as growing global connectivity increases the potential for health crises to impact at global scales, ASEF's role as a facilitator between Asia and Europe is especially important.
