About the network

The general objective of the network is to improve the management of epidemiological emergent risks in Southeast Asia by strengthening synergies and skills sharing. GREASE involves stakeholders from Thailand, Lao PDR, Cambodia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Particularly, vast changes affecting biodiversity and livestock production/marketing may unexpectedly increase the risk of zoonotic diseases transmission.
