    A key component of strengthening animal health systems involves scaling up a solid veterinary epidemiology capacity. FAO's Epidemiology Mapping Tool (EMT) provides a comprehensive assessment to identify gaps and formulate action plans, enhancing national strategic objectives for epidemiology capacity development and providing evidence for improved policy and practice. The tool was developed by the FAO Emergency Centre Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) in Asia and the Pacific.

    Epidemiology workforce capacity development is a key part of strengthening Animal Health Systems. The aim of a field epidemiology training programme is to improve the institutional capacity to detect, prevent, control, and manage animal diseases that negatively impact animal and human health, farmers’ livelihoods, food security, and trade. These guidelines provide an eight-step approach to develop competency based training programmes, from assessment of the needs and readiness of a country or region, to developing, planning, implementing, and monitoring and assessment of the impact of field epidemiology training programs. A set of core competencies developed by a participative and inclusive process, for frontline and intermediate levels, are provided to guide the development of curriculum and strategic plans to better achieve field epidemiology training programme sustainability. These guidelines should assist in addressing the veterinary services and animal health systems’ needs and priorities including field epidemiology workforce capacity development.
