Animal Diseases

The aim of managing animal diseases is to minimise the the negative consequences of animal diseases on animal production and welfare, trade in livestock and livestock products, and human health. It involves avoiding outbreaks of epidemic diseases and overseeing endemic diseases in cost-effective routes that minimise their effects on product, trade, subsistences and human health and avoid their spread to areas where they are not endemic. The ability of animal health service providers in both the public and private sector to effectively manage animal diseases depends on knowledge of the diseases involved and access to information and tools as required. This module renders broad-spectrum notions and principles of some of the tools that are available for animal health management.
