The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) are in partnership to host a multi-country, high-level meeting focussing on managing risk communications for public health emergencies.

The overall aim of this meeting is to strengthen decision makers’ capacity to support Emergency Risk Communication (ERC) for Public Health Emergency (PHE). It will look at risk communications as an essential component of crisis management ensuring public communication, internal communication and social engagement. The meeting will identify possible obstacles for high-level officials to make appropriate decisions, and develop strategies to communicate risk to the public before/during/after PHE.

Specific objectives are:

  • To recognise the complexity and the role of ERC in a context of crisis management, including its influence to the public
  • To identify difficulties in making decisions and communicating with the public in PHE from high-level officials’ point of view
  • To explore and integrate work-flow coordination between high-level officials and their respective ERC spokespersons
  • To develop recommendations on actions needed to prepare for future public health events and ERC
