The Meeting adopted a 10-point plan of action to manage the spread of infectious and vector-borne diseases in the Region. The creation of a Stop Ebola There and Here Fund (SETH Fund) was an integral part of the 10-point action plan. Although Ebola came under control, other threats emerged. It is to these threats that CARPHA and the Caribbean health community have been responding, the latest of which is Zika.
Given the changing landscape, as well as the relevance of this initiative to regional health security, it was recommended that the narrow focus of Ebola be changed to include all major threats to regional health security. The Fund is therefore now referred to as the Stop Epidemics There and Here (SETH) Fund.
