    Improving Global, Regional and National Capacities for Field Veterinary Epidemiology and Surveillance Networks - GCP/GLO/892/USA 2024
    Also available in:

    With veterinary epidemiology capacities around the world lacking, there is high demand for a well-trained global veterinary workforce. Training veterinarians and animal health professionals in field veterinary epidemiology will better equip them to monitor livestock diseases, including zoonotic diseases. As a result, surveillance can be conducted efficiently and outbreaks identified and analysed more rapidly, allowing countries to prevent and respond to outbreaks in a more effective and timely manner using a One Health approach. The present project, the second phase of a project implemented between 2014 and 2018, aimed to continue to build field veterinary epidemiology capacity through training sessions on field epidemiology for veterinarians, participatory epidemiology/disease surveillance (PE/PDS) and risk assessment, as well as to support sustainable networks through the development of disease information platforms for sharing of epidemiological information.

    Eight years of immediate technical assistance activities strengthening emergency preparedness for HPAI in Viet Nam
    Also available in:

    The history of the battle to control HPAI in Viet Nam is relatively short but within the past 10 years there have been many insights developed, as well as some twists and turns in the road to the current level of success. As the concerted HPAI effort supported by FAO is coming to an end, albeit to be adapted into a broader One Health approach to animal health and zoonotic diseases, it was considered timely that a retrospective overview of the programme be produced to capture key elements and lessons that have arisen. A key adjunct for this retrospective is the FAO document ‘Lessons from HPAI – a technical stocktaking of outputs, outcomes, best practices and lessons learned from the fight against highly pathogenic avian influenza in Asia 2005-2011’. Consistent with that stocktake, this retrospective on the HPAI control effort in Viet Nam does not attempt to be a comprehensive compilation of all the outputs and outcomes from the HPAI programme, but is rather a synopsis that captures the key experiences and challenges faced in Viet Nam in addressing this complex disease problem, concentrating on the USAID inputs but also with reference to other project areas as appropriate. This document examines the HPAI situation in Viet Nam at several points during the last 8 years through the prism of activities and outcomes in key areas such as coordination, surveillance, laboratory services, vaccination, biosecurity, socio-economics and communications and advocacy.

    Wild bird highly pathogenic avian influenza surveillance (Mongolian language) 2010
    Waterfowl and shorebirds are considered to be the natural reservoirs for all avian influenza virus subtypes and, in general, most subtypes cause little or no disease in wildlife. However, type A influenza has undergone a combination of genetic drifts and shifts that have resulted in the H5N1 AI virus strain causing morbidity and mortality in many wildlife species. Although some surveillance has started, more research is necessary to determine the role that healthy wildlife plays in transporting and shedding virus. This manual provides basic guidelines for wildlife surveillance and disease investigation whatever their cause. It contains chapters on clinical signs of infectious disease, bird handling and sample collection methods, sample handling and transportation, and diagnostic techniques. It also contains important recommendations on disinfection and personal safety.
