Abstract

Transportation plays an important role in the spread of infectious diseases. The continuously increasing global air travel facilitates the quick and sometimes uncontrollable spread of naturally or intentionally released person-to-person transmissible pathogens around the world, while mass transportation systems offer an effective way of accelerating the spread of infectious diseases within communities. PANDHUB - Prevention and Management of High Threat Pathogen Incidents in Transport Hubs - is a European Union-funded project whose goal is to aid transport operators and relevant actors in transport hubs in the development of their current pandemic and dangerous pathogen preparedness and response plans. The project is intended to cover the extraordinary aspects specific to pathogen threats in the transport hub environment. In order to balance the needs of both transport hub business continuity and health protection in the face of a serious public health threat in a transport hub, it is vital that hub operators and public health authorities together work together to develop operational preparedness and response plans.
