Our Participating countries

Participating countries
The geographic continuum between countries around the Mediterranean, Balkans, Black Sea, Maghreb and Sahel regions entails common climatic and epidemiological characteristics and shared public health concerns, pushing towards a common regional dynamic in combating health threats.
MediLabSecure gathers a broad network of reference laboratories and institutes experts in the field of vector-borne diseases from 22 countries neighboring of the European Union, across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Within each country, up to 5 national reference institutions have been designated as focal points for the project. The objective is to bring together all the expertise and mandates necessary to implement a One Health approach for the surveillance, preparedness and response to vector borne threats, namely: human & animal virology, medical entomology, public health & veterinary services. The participating institutions for each country and their expertise are listed below:
