Project summary

Maciej is currently running a serial seroepidemiology study on human influenza in southern Vietnam and an influenza-like illness study in Ho Chi Minh City. The results of this work will be used to determine whether influenza viruses persist year-to-year in Vietnam and, more broadly, to determine whether countries like Vietnam have the right conditions to seed influenza epidemics in other parts of the world.
