The regional network for Asia and Australasia comprises STAR-IDAZ partners from Australia (Regional Network Coordinator), China, India, Russia, New Zealand and Japan. The aim of the network is the same as that of the STAR-IDAZ project (sharing information and improved collaboration) but at a regional level.

The group will meet twice a year, once in conjunction with the STAR-IDAZ consortium and a second time in between STAR-IDAZ meetings which will be scheduled to coincide with other animal health related meetings in the region. Representatives from non-STAR-IDAZ partner countries in the Asian and Australasian region will be invited to attend the separate regional meetings.
