PRESENTATIONS

When the opportunity arises, Animal Health Works aims to present its scientific approaches and results.

In addition, some images and animations are uploaded to elicit the approach Animal Health Works takes to explain epidemiological concepts on disease control management.

Excerpt of PCP Practitioner Network on Stakeholder engagement 

In this excerpt,  different aspects to stakeholder engagement are highlighted and a number of job-aids (tools) are provided. 

The steps discussed are

  • Stakeholder identification

  • Stakeholder mapping

  • Stakeholder engagement

  • Multi-stakeholder process 

Animation used to explain the different approaches to outbreak investigation. 

 

In this animation, a distinction is made between Routine Outbreak Investigation (ROI) and Advanced Outbreak Investigation (AOI).  

ROI may be  applied for every report of a suspected outbreak (of a notifiable disease) as to confirm suspicion, to better understand its origin and onwards spread and to support livestock owners to mitigate the direct impact of the outbreak. 

AOI may be applied in specific situations and aims to evaluate current control approaches and to test assumptions about the transmission and impact of the disease.

Animation used to explain the many steps needed to share the information of reportable diseases that make up passive surveillance

 

In this animation, a default 10% of events is not reported along the information flow. The question is posed how many infections will lead to action.

It is used to discuss the local situation, to indicate the steps in which most of the information is not forwarded and to assess the overall surveillance sensitivity.
