Background / Highlights of Activity
Rationale:
 
The Asia-Pacific region faces severe threats from a number of animal diseases that occur as epidemics or are endemic across national boundaries and termed as transboundary animal diseases (TADs). The TADs not only adversely affect agricultural productivity but also act as barriers to trade due to quarantine and other measures taken to prevent the spread of such pathogens also lead to reduced access to international markets. In recent years, diseases like Avian Influenza (AI), Rabies, Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) and Foot and Mouth disease (FMD), among other TADS, have adversely affected agriculture and communities in the region. In addition, exposure of humans to pathogens of farm animals poses direct threat to human health.
 
The strategy to address TADs is prevention, early warning including forecast, early detection and early control. Investment in early control and detection mechanisms will be critical to avoid high costs of control and eradication. Prevention and early warning requires a reduction of the possibilities of entry and establishment which can be accomplished through better border control and rapid diagnostic and surveillance tools. Cooperation of adjoining countries is required to ensure better sharing the information of monitoring and surveillance of TADs.
 
Preventing and controlling TADs is one of the most important issues of regional cooperation in the Asia and Pacific region. Cross-boundary cooperation in surveillance, diagnostics, epidemiology and containment are the most effective means of combating this menace. To provide a common platform for addressing this issue, FFTC proposes to organize the workshop in the Philippines to share the information of the status of occurrence and impact of such adverse TADs in Asia Pacific countries, progress in R&D, and current and future needs to collaborate for the prevention and control of these diseases so as to minimize their economic, social and environmental impacts. Furthermore, recommendations concerning TADs and their control measures in the region will be addressed by implementing the extensive discussions during the sessions. These recommendations are helpful to strengthen regional cooperation, to minimize the spread and impact of TADs in the Asia and Pacific region.

Objectives

  • To share the information on the current epidemic situation research and national or regional control strategies of important TADs in the Asian Pacific region
  • To share the experience of monitoring, surveillance, and control measure of important TADs in the Asian Pacific region
  • To identify the status and current and future research needs of collaboration and partnerships of preventing and controlling TADs of regional and sub-regional importance.
