The major objective of the project is to ensure an efficient, multi-sector, multi-stakeholder, coherent response at the EU-level to public health threats (PHT) in air transport (nota bene: PHT is defined as threats from communicable and non-communicable diseases as well as from physical, chemical and biological sources and deliberate release acts):
(1) by creating a functioning AIRSAN NETWORK of national public health (PHA) and civil aviation authorities (CAA), local PHA at location of airports, airport management responsible for public health events and airlines across EU Member States (MS)
(around 10 airports and a minimum of 8 major European airlines across at least 8 MS)
(2) by reviewing existing, developing and testing new standard operating procedures (SOPs) and guidelines on control of PHT in air transport to be implemented across the AIRSAN NETWORK. An AIRSAN WEBSITE linked to an AIRSAN COMMUNICATION PLATFORM will serve for information gathering and information exchange. An AIRSAN TRAINING TOOL will be developed to support countries with implementation of SOPs and IHR.
