GARA, an initiative of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), is created to establish and sustain global research partnerships that will generate scientific knowledge and tools to contribute to the successful prevention, control and where feasible eradication of African Swine Fever, an important transboundary animal disease.

CReSA has joined, as a partner, the Global African Swine Fever Research Alliance (GARA). USDA has taken into consideration the fact that control of African Swine Fever (ASF) is likely to be achieved only through an enormous effort, obviously involving a large investment both in terms of ideas and funds. Such challenge is so colossal that it is quite improbable than a single institution could achieve this goal alone. GARA proposes to build a consortium of institutions conducting research on ASF to provide the scientific information and tools needed to control ASF in ASF free countries and where ASF is endemic. Also, it will enhance international collaborations for maximize the impact of available resources and expertise.

The primary objective of the GARA will be to support through scientific actions the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) efforts in the global control and, when feasible, the eradication of ASF.

GARA launch meeting has been celebrated in Plum Island (New York, USA) in April 3-4, 2013.
