Scenario exercises – African Swine Fever and Avian Influenza

Multi-lingual scenario exercises are now available for the African Swine Fever and Avian Influenza disease-specific models in Epidemix. These allow users to investigate the transmission dynamics of both ASF & AI and their implementation on detection and spread in depth. To access, simply open the relevant model and select the “Scenario exercise” tab. 

Switch model type to "Disease-specific" and select either "African Swine Fever (ASF)" or "Avian Influenza (AI)"


Navigate to the fourth tab


Navigate the scenario exercise using the progress bar and Next/Previous buttons

Compartmentalisation Guidelines - African Swine Fever

World Organisation for Animal Health

March 2021 | Available here

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) has developed a set of guidelines that aim to assist OIE Members and stakeholders of the pig industry in the practical implementation of compartmentalisation, specifically for African Swine Fever (ASF).  Epidemix is used in the guidelines to demonstrate how dynamic modelling can help risk management, support stakeholder interactions and assist in the design of rapid detection surveillance systems. Epidemix’s ASF model helps demonstrate the importance of different transmission characteristics and allows users to explore different disease introduction scenarios.

Disease transmission and scientific workflow

Modelling Infectious Diseases

Kim VanderWaal (University of Minnesota)

July 2020 | Available here

An exercise using Epidemix to familiarize students with principles of infectious disease modeling; including assumptions, parameterization and usage, the influence of contact rate and heterogeneity on disease dynamics, and how models can be used to predict outcomes of disease control strategies.
