[Extract] This disease strategy is for the control and eradication of chytridiomycosis/Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. It is one action among 68 actions in a national plan to help abate the key threatening process of chytridiomycosis (Australian Government 2006). The action is number 1.1.3: "Prepare a model action plan written along the lines of AusVetPlan — http://www.aahc.com.au/ausvetplan/) for chytridiomycosis — free populations based on a risk management approach, setting out the steps of a coordinated response if infection with chytridiomycosis is detected. The model action plan will be based on a risk management approach using quantitative risk analysis where possible and will be able to be modified to become area - specific or population - specific. The plan could be implemented in the face of new outbreaks in chytridiomycosis -free areas or in chytridiomycosis - free populations. Individual jurisdictions can modify the model action plan as a preventative strategy or at least have it available as the framework for a response plan if needed. This will help ensure national consistency in responses to any new outbreaks. For threatened species, the action plan should inform relevant species recovery plans. Infrastructure, protocols, responsibilities and funding sources should be identified in this action plan, using the approach used in AusVetPlan. To protect areas that are chytridiomycosis - free, an underlying principle should be that amphibians with chytridiomycosis are not transported into chytridiomycosis - free areas. Actions to reduce transmission into chytridiomycosis - free areas should aim for reduction of risk at source, and prevention of dissemination of B. dendrobatidis at destination."
