Being connected via the SEALAB network allows laboratories to strengthen their capacities within the national healthcare system by following a clear method and developing action plans for targeted improvement.
Our aim is to ensure that laboratories are ready to respond quickly and effectively in the event of a disease outbreak, whether human or animal, with pandemic potential.
All SEALAB activities are aligned with the country’s national strategies and policies, in coordination with national institutions in the laboratory sector and the relevant ministries in charge of public health and veterinary diagnostic laboratories. Close partnerships between the consortium and local human and animal health authorities will ensure the project’s sustainability.
Zoonotic diseases infect animals and can be transmitted to humans. In the fields of human and veterinary health, the SEALAB consortium seeks to reinforce the capacities of laboratory personnel, quality management systems, data management and laboratory supervision and control.
