Emergency response arrangements

Emergency animal disease (EAD) preparedness and response have been core activities for AHA since its inception in 1996, reflecting the importance of these activities to protect Australia’s animal health status.

AHA delivers strategic programs and projects to ensure that Australia is recognised by consumers and competitors as a world leader in EAD preparedness and response.

The chart explains what happens in a major EAD event and covers five individual phases:

  • Reporting of emergency animal diseases (EADs)
  • EADRA incident definition phase
  • EADRA emergency response phase
  • EADRA transmission to management phase
  • EADRA proof of freedom phase
