​This rapid risk assessment considers the risk to the EU of an outbreak of invasive meningococcal disease in the UK and Sweden associated with the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan. The two countries have reported eight cases (five confirmed and three suspected cases) of IMD to date in scouts and their contacts who have returned from the Jamboree, which took place in Japan from 28 July to August.
