Public health activities:

Public health is at the heart of the VR group's priorities. The CNRs it hosts participate in the virological surveillance of the circulation of influenza viruses and other respiratory viruses responsible for influenza syndromes or respiratory infections (ARI) in the community and the hospital environment and others monitoring the measles virus and rubella. In collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Epidemiology of the IPD, a sentinel surveillance network for influenza and other respiratory viruses has been set up in Senegal. This network was developed through a syndromic surveillance approach (4S) and enables national authorities to monitor all viral etiologies associated with febrile, respiratory and diarrhea syndromes.
