Working group Transboundary Animal Disease Management
The working group supports and promotes the development and implementation of conceptual and innovative animal disease control measures on an international level, often beyond the borders of the EU. The focus is on notifiable diseases (TADs: Transboundary Animal Diseases). An interdisciplinary approach is implemented that uses laboratory and epidemiological tools to draft surveillance programs, control measures, biosafety concepts and risk analyzes. Our presence on site to carry out outbreak investigations is essential. The conceptual approach also includes advice on the legal framework, the inclusion of relevant socio-economic factors and support for international networking, particularly with neighbouring countries.
