The 2015 2nd quarter regional video conference for ASEAN+3 Field Epidemiology Training Network (FETN) was held on Monday, 22nd June 2015 during 13.30-15.30 hr (Thailand time). The meeting was organized by AEGCD – Chair 2015, and coordinated by ASEAN Secretariat and FETN coordinating office. Technical support and host was provided by Ministry of Health, Malaysia. The web conference software, “Go To Meeting”, was used as the main tool for this meeting.
Twelve member countries including Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam attended the meeting. International partners including Thailand MoPH - US.CDC Collaborations (TUC), WHO South East Asian Regional Office (SEARO), and WHO Western Pacific Region Office (WPRO) as well as resource person from WHO regional office Thailand also participated in this meeting. However, Republic of Korea has earlier informed about their difficulty to attend the video conference due to the fact that all the experts in KCDC and MOH have been focusing on containing this outbreak, so that the videoconference on 22nd June 2015 was not feasible at this stage. Instead, they will be able to provide a phone conference on MERS in Korea and will inform the availability after quenching this outbreak.
