Prevention, mitigation, management of infectious diseases on cruise ships and passenger ferries

Descrizione del progetto

La prevenzione delle malattie infettive nel settore del trasporto marittimo di passeggeri

La pandemia di COVID-19 ha esercitato un impatto significativo nel settore del trasporto marittimo di passeggeri. Per affrontare tale problema, il progetto HEALTHY SAILING, finanziato dall’UE, introdurrà innovative misure multistrato collaudate, economiche e basate sui rischi e sulle evidenze per la prevenzione, la mitigazione e la gestione delle malattie infettive. Le soluzioni saranno differenziate per traghetti di grandi dimensioni, navi da crociera e imbarcazioni turistiche. Il progetto adotterà un approccio completo che riguarderà la preparazione e la risposta alle malattie infettive note per la loro frequente diffusione nelle navi passeggeri e a quelle che ad oggi non si sono mai manifestate ma per le quali la preparazione è essenziale, nonché alle patologie di origine ignota, con l’obiettivo di garantire la capacità di reazione ai futuri agenti patogeni emergenti e alle prossime pandemie. HEALTHY SAILING si occuperà dell’intero percorso realizzato dai passeggeri e dall’equipaggio, dalla propria abitazione all’imbarcazione e viceversa.

Obiettivo

With vast experience, in-depth knowledge and established expertise in infectious disease prevention and control on passenger ships, HEALTHY SAILING consortium presents a comprehensive approach introducing innovative, multi-layered, risk and evidence-based, cost-effective tested measures for infectious diseases prevention, mitigation and management (PMM) differentiated for large ferries, cruise ships and expedition vessels. This approach covers: a) preparedness and response to known infectious diseases frequently occurring on passenger ships, diseases that have never occurred but for which preparedness is essential, diseases of unknown aetiology to ensure preparedness for future emerging pathogens/pandemics; b) the entire passenger/crew journey travelling from home to ship and returning, on-board, during shore-side visits; c) ship-board operations, shore-side company operations, port destinations and communities; d) a global perspective of project outputs towards communities and passenger shipping industry. Epidemiological studies, risk assessment, modelling for disease spread and aerosol/droplet dispersion and setting disease thresholds/alert levels will develop a scientific evidence-base and support production of evidence-informed guidelines on COVID-19 for ships/ports, passengers/crew vaccination, ventilation systems and expedition vessels’ medical operation needs. Development/testing of ship-specific syndromic surveillance, AI systems, decision support tools will contribute to early health threat detection on-board, risk-based proportionate responses, and healthy on-board environments. Toolkits for blended learning with hands-on training and technology induced behaviour change will further knowledge, awareness and compliance of all stakeholders. An integrated e-pass based on one-ID concept and toolkit predicting port response capacities will address port operation and community needs. A scientific international panel will promote a harmonized global approach.
