GROUP DISCUSSION

We are planning to have a small but interesting discussion organized as a panel aimimg to share the status of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases in Nordic Countries. We are therefore kindly asking each participating institution to prepare a short presentation (10 min) showing the most important aspects and giving insights into the situation of such diseases in their countries.
