The RSV Webinar: “RSV Travels by Airplane”

During the 14th webinar of ReSViNET’s RSV Webinar Series, Prof Philippe Lemey, shared his insights on RSV Travels by Airplane. He is the senior editor of the second edition of the Phylogenetic Handbook and a two-time ERC grant awardee. Philippe is now a full Professor at the Rega Institute, KU Leuven, where he studies the evolutionary processes that shape viral genetic diversity, spanning large-scale epidemic processes as well as small-scale transmission histories and within-host evolutionary processes.

Paper of the Month: December 2023

Outpatient respiratory syncytial virus infections and novel preventive interventions

Authors: Sarah Hak et al.

With interventions to prevent respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection within reach, this review aims to provide healthcare professionals with the latest information necessary to inform parents and assess the potential impact of RSV prevention on everyday practice. We address frequently asked questions for parental counseling.

Article by IHI “Going viral: A new way to track RSV awareness”

We are happy to announce the release of an interesting article, authored by the experts of the IHI – Innovative Health Initiatives hedding light on our online RSV awareness tool.

RSV Dashboard 

We are proud to announce we have developed the first-ever global RSV surveillance dashboard and it is now live!

ReSViNET Foundation, in collaboration with AstraZeneca, is supporting healthcare decisions by providing transparency and accessibility to shared global RSV surveillance data. The dashboard will help simplify tracking changes in RSV seasonality globally. This will include at least 20 countries that are representative of different geographic regions from both hemispheres.

Connecting research and society

The ReSViNET Foundation is the first and leading global non-profit organisation fully committed to reducing the global burden of the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).

We collaborate with researchers, the health sector, governments, international statutory bodies, non-profit organisations and the wider civil society in an effort to coordinate actions and raise awareness about RSV infection and to tackle the challenge of RSV infection prevention and treatment.

A global health challenge

Every year, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) affects more than 33 million children under 5 years worldwide. It is one of our most significant global healthcare challenges, not only in infants, but also in older adults. ReSViNET is the first official RSV foundation and aims to provide a platform for global collaborations to raise awareness about RSV infection and stimulate the development of RSV prevention and treatment.
