Compartmentalisation Guidelines - African Swine Fever
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.
