Sri Lanka and the rest of the Asia Pacific region has been severely affected with dengue and other flavi-viruses. We are currently experiencing the largest dengue epidemic ever. In addition, many countries in our region are experiencing outbreaks of encephalitis and other neurological diseases due to flavi and other emerging viruses. Unfortunately, even after intense public health programs to control the vector, there does not appear to be a reduction in the burden of these infections. Therefore, it is crucial that we join hands to discuss how we can try to reduce the burden and complications due to these emerging viruses. This conference will hopefully set the platform to strengthen the existing collaborative efforts and to develop new opportunities to take things forward.
