During the next four years, the Australian government will provide A$8.4 million (US$6 million) to fund research in wildlife health and early detection for zoonotic viruses and diseases.

The fund will partner with the World Organisation for Animal Health, and although primarily domestic, will provide Papua New Guinea with A$205,000 (US$150,000) in support of its African swine fever outbreak and A$180,000 (US$131,000) to assist Timor-Leste with biosecurity following its swine fever outbreak.
