After a series of November 2012 small group meetings, with a goal to identify the issues related to aquatic health, food safety, and zoonotic diseases in the target countries, collaborators agreed to conduct a literature review and a prioritized, health needs assessment (HNA) for each country. Participants  convened in Cluj-Napoca, Romania in June 2013 to share and discuss findings from each country. A list of the attendees to the June 2013 conference is listed below.  The results of the needs and opportunities assessment have been compiled into a manuscript and are currently under journal review.
