The 3-day face-to-face training of the trainers training course titled “Preparedness and response to public health events at ports’’ will take place on the 12-14 March 2019 on board the cruise ship Celestyal Olympia docked at the port of Piraeus, Greece.

The training programme is being organised within the framework of the EU HEALTHY GATEWAYS joint action by the University of Thessaly (UTH), Greece in collaboration with the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIMV), Netherlands.
