Strategies for enhancing Australias capacity to respond to emerging infectious diseases 67-78

Along with many other countries, Australia faces significant threats from emerging infectious diseases that emanate from wildlife or involve a wildlife vector. A salient example of such a disease is Hendra virus. The outbreaks of Hendra virus in 2008 highlight the critical need for a One Health approach to the management of emerging infectious diseases. In Australia, cross-sectoral and cross jurisdictional One Health approaches to the improved management of emerging infectious disease are being undertaken. These include improved management and sharing of biosecurity information, the joint cross-sectoral development of laboratory infrastructure, One Health policy initiatives and One Health approaches to disease research. These initiatives are enhancing Australias disease response capacity and capability as well as supporting efforts to better control emerging infectious disease in the region.
