Dr. Liz Wagstrom - PEDV - Next Steps

  1. 1. PED Building on the Lessons Learned Liz Wagstrom, DVM, MS, DACVPM Chief Veterinarian
  2. 2. PED Response • Industry, State and Federal governments worked to address PED outbreak • As a OIE non-reportable disease the U.S. did not have a response plan in place for PED • Pointed out a need to be better prepared for the next emerging disease
  3. 3. If PED had been a “FAD”
  4. 4. NPPC Forum Resolution Report Back to 2015 Delegate Body on: 1.) A proposed plan of coordination and program execution for the US Swine Industry in the event of the identification/introduction of any new economically significant swine disease (defined as not currently identified in the United States as of March 1, 2014). This shall include all possible non- reportable diseases which may afflict swine (Defined as not an OIE –Listed Disease, Infection or Infestation).
  5. 5. NPPC Forum Resolution 2.) A response plan to include: • A prioritized threat listing of economically significant non-reportable swine diseases not currently identified in the United States • Responsibilities of the government in surveillance and response (Federal, state and local) • Responsibilities of the industry organizations in surveillance and response (National, state and local)
  6. 6. NPPC Forum Resolution • Responsibilities of producers and other segments of the pork chain in surveillance and response • Coordinated Strategies of governmental and industry organizations to respond to and contain the identified disease. And in the event containment would not be successful, strategies to manage the existence of a given disease
  7. 7. NPPC Forum Resolution • Strategies and Methods for the efficient sharing of information deemed necessary in the containment / control of a given disease • Strategies to strengthen the defence of the US Industry from potential introduction of given diseases. • An outline of projected resources and associated costs to implement the proposed plan shall be included in the report to the 2015 Delegate Body.
  8. 8. Pork Checkoff Advisement The National Pork Board, in cooperation with the National Pork Producers Council, shall draft plans for funding and building the infrastructure needed to collect and manage swine health surveillance data through: – an industry-driven and directed program housed with the National Pork Board; or – an industry funded third party entity housed independently of the National Pork Board; or – a state-federal-industry program cooperatively funded and managed.
  9. 9. Status Update • AASV taking lead on developing a prioritized list of known swine viruses worldwide – Indexing them on economic significance, diagnostic capability, control strategies • We can’t prioritize what we don’t know – Also need to be prepared for emerging diseases that are unkown – Categorization by transmission, zoonotic potential, disease caused
  10. 10. Response Plan Status • Response plan advisory group – Producers, vets, state veterinarians, USDA • Met in May to go over first draft of plan • Considers authorities and responsibilities for response • Draft is being modified for further considerations
  11. 11. Phases of FMD Response Transition to Phase 2 less than 4 days (96 hours). Types
  12. 12. FMD Detection in the United States: Types of an FMD Outbreak Type 6: Catastrophic North American Response Shifts from Emphasis on Stamping-Out to Emphasis on Alternate Strategies (duration of FMD response) Size of FMD Outbreak (in terms of animals, premises, and jurisdictions affected) Six Types of FMD Outbreaks 12
  13. 13. Surveillance Data • National Pork Board leading the efforts to address collection, housing and utilization of surveillance data – Need to balance producer confidentiality with disease management to protect U.S. industry • NPPC supporting appropriations in Congress to support “Comprehensive Surveillance” at USDA
  14. 14. Strengthening the Borders • Continue to encourage USDA, FDA and others to thoroughly investigate the pathways of entry of PED into the U.S. and close those pathways • NPPC has a call for proposals to analyze existing border safeguards, index products coming into U.S. pork production, and consider additional safeguards
  15. 15. Summary • Moving forward to control PED, protect against future emerging diseases and appropriately respond to outbreaks will require a coordinated industry, state and federal effort – Some federal partners may be those who are not familiar with production agriculture
