Primary objectives and outcomes
The end of the COVID-19 pandemic remains out of sight. To overcome challenges in these times of uncertainty, Japan set the goal of leaving no one's health behind. JICA is taking a holistic approach to address issues related to the pandemic and health security in partner countries by focusing on prevention, precaution and treatment. Using this approach, it hopes to contribute to the protection of people's lives as the urgent target and build increasingly resilient societies.
Content of the discussions
In this the 9th webinar in the series, the three speakers presented an overview of COVID-19 wastewater surveillance throughout the world, the latest research findings and testing methods developed in Japan and discussed adaptation of the methods in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Wastewater surveillance is expected to be utilized as an effective surveillance tool to complement traditional surveillance methods in the presence of unrecognized infections.
