The project will be implemented to the benefit of the non-EU countries covered by the EU CBRN Centre of Excellence African Atlantic Façade region and its neighbourhood countries. Priority is given to the countries affected by the 2014 Ebola Virus Disease outbreak, namely Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Beyond facing the current emergency situation, hereinafter the use of the EUWAM-Lab may be extended to other African countries of the CoE African Atlantic Façade and Eastern and Central Africa regions to build capacity to fight against biological threats.
The overall objective of this project is to strengthen the capacity of the countries affected by the 2014 Ebola Virus Disease outbreak to detect and identify infectious diseases caused by risk group 4 viruses. The outcomes of this project will represent the basis for a long-term project which will strengthen cooperation and reinforce the capacity of the CBRN CoE partner countries from the African Atlantic Façade region to fight against biological threats.
