Emergency Animal Disease: Are we adequately prepared?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the presentation, it is intended to discuss issues with the audience including: the role and training of private practitioners in disease identification and local disease management; veterinary para-professionals and emergency services; veterinary laboratories; disease notification; VDs eDECs and eNVDs; farm auditing and LPA; and tracking livestock trucks. It will be proposed that Government and Industry need to increase funding for EAD preparedness just as a country needs to train an army before the war. There will be discussion as to the requirement for government and industry put an additional $50million into EAD preparedness to mitigate a $50billion risk?
