Civil-Military Systems for collaborative responses to Infectious Disease and Deliberate Biological Events

A pre-CDC Conference workshop Monday 26th June 2017 0900-1300h

Explore the current Australian civil-military cooperative framework for responding to epidemics. This workshop will touch on the key interfaces between the civil and military health systems, the place of the ADF in responding to crises, and the technology and systems in place for working within multi-agency response events. Information, analysis and comparison with overseas civil-military frameworks and responses to epidemic crises that have occurred recently will be outlined. This workshop is suited to both civilian and military health, as well as scientific and operational response personnel who wish to better understand issues of preparedness, operational conduct and recovery utilising civil-military operational responses in the Australian context. Representatives from the following organisations will present at this workshop – Joint Health Command, Special Operations Command, Special Operations Engineer Regiment, Defence Science and Technology Group, SPHCM, UNSW VIRL, and the Australian National University. This workshop is presented by the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence Integrated Systems in Epidemic Response (ISER).
