National Significant Disease Investigation Program

The NSDI Program provides funding to veterinary practitioners to investigate and report on significant disease events in wildlife and livestock. The NSDI Program is managed by Animal Health Australia (AHA) and more information on the Program is available on the AHA website .

Funding for disease investigations is available to registered, non-government veterinarians engaged in clinical veterinary medicine, including all veterinarians in university clinics, zoos and wildlife parks.

The NSDI Program can provide funds for veterinary investigations, plus additional funds for laboratory testing.

If you are interested in applying for NSDI funding for a wildlife disease investigation, contact WHA (details below) or the WHA Coordinator in your jurisdiction.
