National Significant Disease Investigation Program
The National Significant Disease Investigation Program (NSDIP) in Queensland offers subsidies to veterinary practitioners who investigate and report on significant disease incidents in wildlife.
Disease investigation subsidies
Disease investigation subsidies are available for field or clinical work (e.g. clinical evaluation and/or necropsy, collection of diagnostic samples), laboratory diagnostic work, and a follow-up field investigation, if required.
Eligible veterinary practitioners
Registered non-government veterinarians engaged in clinical veterinary medicine – including veterinary practitioners in university clinics, zoos and wildlife parks – are eligible to participate in the program.
