RESTUS Establishment of a platform and a Tunisian-Italian network for surveillance of emerging diseases transmitted by ticks and Culicidae (mosquitoes)

Méditerranée (Tunisie – Italie )

Titre : RESTUS Establishment of a platform and a Tunisian-Italian network for surveillance of emerging diseases transmitted by ticks and Culicidae (mosquitoes)

Région/Pays : Méditerranée (Tunisie – Italie )

Date/ Durée : 2013-2015

Description
The project aims to strengthen and improve the control of diseases transmitted by zoonotic vectors (MTVZ) emerging due to bacteria transmitted by ticks or fleas, and viruses transmitted by mosquitoes. This monitoring system requires the creation of a cross-border network for the epidemiological surveillance, which, thanks to a database, will monitor the evolution of this type of MTVZ and will allow to activate health alarms fast. The development of a biotechnology platform will also provide early diagnosis of suspected cases in animals and humans.

Résultats attendus
The expected results are a better economic return for farmers, better care for patients (faster and more reliable diagnosis, adequate treatment and reduction of hospital costs) and an improvement of the skills of veterinarians and doctors, through specific training programs in the field of identification of vectors, laboratory diagnosis and control measures against MTVZ. In addition, the project intends to conduct scientific exchanges between the two countries, through internships, practical workshops and scientific seminars.
