2 - Presenting results

In presenting the results of your assessment, indicate the following:


Estimate geographical magnitude and health impact in numbers of projected cases and deaths.

Estimate needs for outside assistance based on preliminary findings (e.g. drugs, vaccines, technical personnel, and logistics and communications support).

Give recommendations on the following:




- priority activities and priority at-risk groups, if the disease has been diagnosed; refer to existing emergency plans that may have been prepared; and

- further epidemiological field investigations, if the epidemic is still not well understood.



Convey the rapid assessment findings to decision-makers at community, subnational, national and international levels.
