Cost of National Prevention Systems for Animal Diseases and Zoonoses

Project summary:
The study had two main objectives: first, to estimate the costs of National Prevention Systems (NPS) for animal diseases and zoonoses in compliance with OIE international standards on quality of veterinary services, allowing permanent early detection and rapid response to emerging and re-emerging diseases in different regions, economies, animal health systems and eco-systems; second, to identify economic indicators closely linked to veterinary services in compliance with OIE international standards on quality of veterinary services which may be later used to further complete and improve the OIE-PVS Tool, particularly in the field of the follow-up on the cost of permanent national surveillance, early detection, and rapid response mechanism. The focus of this project was on Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs), particularly those with high zoonotic potential.
