Overview

The Tool for Influenza Pandemic Risk Assessment (TIPRA) version 1 was launched on 4-5 May 2016. The meeting was attended by public and animal health experts from national and global authorities, as well as research institutes. During the meeting the participants discussed the TIPRA principles, methods, limitations, and its place within the influenza risk assessment landscape. The next steps in the evolution of TIPRA are to assess other influenza viruses, to monitor, validate and refine the tool as required and to align it within the landscape of influenza and broader public health risk assessment strategies.
