The Joint Action (JA) aims to link and consolidate the objectives of two existing networks dealing with highly infectious bacteria and viruses that emerged from the EU funded project EQADeBa, coordinated by the Robert Koch-Institut (RKI), Germany (EAHC no 2007 204) and the ENP4-Lab project, coordinated by L.Spallanzani National Institute for Infectious Diseases (INMI), Italy (EAHC no 2006 208). The primary objective of the current application is to stabilise both network activities that link 33 partners from 21 European countries highly specialised and advanced laboratories. This will ensure the universal exchange of best diagnostic strategies able to support a European response strategy to outbreaks of highly pathogenic infectious agents plus generating a biodiverse repository of reference materials. The JA will provide a supportive European infrastructure and strategy for external quality assurance exercises (EQAE, bacterial antibiotic susceptibility testing, training, and biosafety and biosecurity review of current practices).

Provide guidelines for health information campaigns on the preparation and prevention of avian influenza epidemics to empower the population living in the rural areas of Europe.
Increase public health awareness on the topics of avian flu, and fill the existing information gap by promoting the preparedness of those who are involved in small-scale poultry and general animal farming, and all those who are more likely to be exposed to wildlife.
Use this project as a pilot for implementing similar projects, which might aim at developing a model for public health campaigns targeting the rural population for health hazards.
