In an interview from the radio show in March 2015, I spoke to pediatric infectious disease specialist and research associate professor at the University of the Philippines in Manila, Dr Anna Lena Lopez about the mosquito borne viral disease, Japanese encephalitis (JE).

Besides talking about the ABCs of JE, Dr Lopez also talked about the findings from a study published in PLOS Neglected Tropical diseases about Japanese encephalitis in the Philippines, which she was a lead author.

In addition, in the study Lopez and her colleagues concluded the need to put the JE vaccine on the national vaccination schedule in the Philippines, which she also discussed.
