High-level Isolation Units (HLIUs) are biocontainment units in healthcare facilities specifically designed for the isolation and treatment of patients with highly infectious diseases (HID). HID are easily transmissible from person to person and pose a threat for healthcare personnel and the public. Therefore, in case of patients with HID (even if only suspected) several measures must be implemented in order to prevent infection and to protect patients as well as healthcare workers: patients need a clinical environment that provides safe, secure and high-quality care as well as an optimal infection containment. Dealing with the technical requirements for High-level Isolation Units is a challenging task of high importance for the global public health.

Together with experts in the field of biocontainment units we will discuss the technical requirements for the design and operation of High-level Isolation Units. Seminar topics will be centered around following questions:

- the medical importance of High-level Isolation Units for public health
- dealing with the diverging biosafety requirements and requirements for high-quality medical patient care
- special requirements on the ventilation systems and air handling in High-level Isolation Units
- standards and regulations for High-level Isolation Units in a global context
