To support increased effectiveness in EAD (Emergency Animal Disease) response management DPI should:
• develop a strategy to improve capacity and capability
• refine and target the communication strategy to clearly outline the key steps, processes and timing to ensure early warning and smooth delivery of communications to all relevant stakeholders and the community
• ensure systematic review and update of Manual of Procedures and Standard Operating Procedures
• work with DHS to establish a more systematic approach to developing protocols for managing specific zoonoses.
