Regional FMD management support – functions and proposals

  1. 1. Regional FMD management support – functions and proposalsMelissa McLaws, Keith SumptionEuFMD
  2. 2. FMD control in W. Eurasia• Diverse region, but with similarities in FMD control• Many resources currently devoted to FMD control: – Mass vaccination programs – State veterinary experts – Laboratory experts and facilities PCP Stages following 2012 W. Eurasia Roadmap meeting
  3. 3. Optimisation of resources: A keyprinciple of PCP-FMD COMPLETE THIS COLUMN Outcome Criteria Questions Yes=1 , No=0 Not applicable=NA, Yellow = enter a number Outcome 1 "Thoroughly described" means information is be available about numbers, origin and destination, reasons (drivers or motives) for the movement and any seasonal patterns 1.1 Are the movements of the key livestock species thoroughly described? 1.2 Are movements of cattle within the country thoroughly described? Animal Are movements of small ruminants within the country thoroughly movements 1.3 described? are understood 1.4 Are movements of swine within the country thoroughly described? 1.5 Are movements of cattle into the country thoroughly described? All husbandry systems, Are movements of small ruminants into the country thoroughly the livestock marketing 1.6 described? network and associated 1.7 Are movements of swine into the country thoroughly described? socio-economic drivers If there is transhumance or nomadic peoples, are the associated are well described for 1.8 animal movement patterns thoroughly described? FMD susceptible species Stakeholders include farmers/producers PLUS all of the main players (people,organizations,companies) involved in breeding, transport of animals, milk/meat processing, feeding and marketing of animals. Stakeholders Have key stakeholder categories involved in cattle production been 1.9 and incentives identified? Have key stakeholder categories involved in small ruminant production 1.10 been identified? Have key stakeholder categories involved in swine production been 1.1 identified?

  5. 5. Risk-based FMD Control Strategy Development
  6. 6. Proposal of Regional approach to support FMD control: W. Eurasia FMD Management CentreWhy?• Countries in region have similar needs for tools and technical support – Similar PCP Stages, common gaps in expertise in epidemiology and socio-economics• FMD control requires regional collaboration – highly contagious, transboundary disease – Strains evolve and move quickly over borders
  7. 7. W. Eurasia FMD management centreOverall Objectives:1. Early warning of regional FMD events/threats2. Promote countries’ PCP ProgressObjectives achieved throughtechnical support to nationalstrategy development andactivities PCP Stages following 2012 W. Eurasia Roadmap meeting
  8. 8. W. Eurasia FMD management centreHow would it work?• A facility to provide technical and management support to FMD control and PCP progression• Participating countries – Initially Turkey (EuFMD member) and neighbours: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Iran, (Syria, Iraq) - EuFMD support – Other countries in region may participate in Centre on cost recovery basis
  9. 9. W. Eurasia FMD management centreHow would it work?• International expertise: – Management, development, backstopping – Workshops and Expert missions• Regional coordinator – Technical, administrative and communication (newsletter, reports) duties• National focal points in participating countries
  10. 10. W. Eurasia FMD management centreObjective 1: Early warning of regional FMD events/threats(ie new strain emergence, new serotype incursion…)1. Monthly reports on regional FMD situation – Integration of regional intellegence (provided by national experts) and intelligent tools (database, algorithms to automate early alert) – WE Database: Empres-i2. Further development of WelNet – Regular sample submission to Ankara FMD Institute from neighbouring countries
  11. 11. W. Eurasia FMD management centreObjective 1: Early warning of events/threats3. Further development of Epidemiology Network – Ongoing development of capacity (PEP-C, workshops) – Exchange of knowledge, ideas, experiences4. Organization of ad hoc meetings in case of high alert/abnormal events – Coordinated response
  12. 12. W. Eurasia FMD management centreObjective 2: Promote Countries’ Progress along the PCP1. Development of national centre-related workplans: – based on country PCP plans and gaps – may be control strategy – Technical support “Ask a PCP Expert”2. Workshops to address gaps: – Will involve multiple countries when appropriate.  Strategy development and Contingency planning  Socio-economic impact assessment  …..
  13. 13. W. Eurasia FMD management centreObjective 2: Promote Countries’ Progress along the PCP3. Expert missions to countries to support workplans – Eg detailed strategy development, laboratory training and support, backstopping activity implementation4. Annual meeting(s): network & W.E Roadmap – Centre would coordinate Roadmap meeting5. Capacity building – PEP-C courses, other training as needed – Co-implementation of activities (national and international experts working together),
  14. 14. FMD control requires multi-faceted approach Legislation Knowledge about FMD transmission Mass Biosecurity Stakeholder vaccination measures Veterinary participation Services competence Animal movement Quarantine restriction Communication Finances Identification and registration FAO-ICAR FMD conference
  15. 15. W. Eurasia FMD management centreBoth objectives will be underpinned with the furtherdevelopment of practical tools & approaches.• FMD datasharing and analysis functions within Empres-i• Application of price monitoring to predict FMD risk• Value chain analysis & economic impact studies• Development & use of disease spread models in FMD endemic countries: – To optimise limited resources for FMD control – To inform cost-benefit & other economic analyses
  16. 16. W. Eurasia FMD management centreConclusions I• Strong need for data to support advocacy – cost-benefit analysis and socio-economic impact studies at country and regional level – ensure ongoing political and economic support for FMD control• Border control remains difficult, new incursions will happen, early warning and information sharing can reduce the impact – National and international movement control remains a key problem. – Movement is usually price-dependant. – Regional cooperation required to monitor
  17. 17. W. Eurasia FMD management centreConclusions II• Convert data to information useful for disease control – Optimise use of vaccine • Insufficient vaccine available for 100% coverage • Need technical support to inform risk-based strategy – Application of other control options: • Raise awareness • Movement controls.. – Ongoing monitoring • Implementation • Impact
