International collaboration

The Public Health Agency of Sweden conducts research aimed at strengthening national and European preparedness for outbreaks of severe communicable diseases.

The Agency leads or participates in several international research projects concerning haemorrhagic fevers, and it is a member of several national and European networks. These networks also enable the Public Health Agency of Sweden to receive early information about outbreaks and cases of infectious diseases, and to collaborate in managing outbreaks that cross, or have the potential to cross, national borders. The Agency can also offer external researchers the opportunity to conduct projects in the high-containment laboratories.
