As a tool to actually apply the principles of PCP-FMD, a simulation exercise is developed based on a hypothetical endemic FMD situation, in a country called "Aphtostania". The key learning objectives are:

  • Conducting risk analysis using multiple sources of information;

  • Collaboration: working in a team (delegation of tasks, decision making, creative thinking);

  • Consultation of stakeholders (private and public) to safeguard support for the FMD control plan.
