European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease Spread model
The EuFMD has promoted the development of EuFMDiS, which is a multi-country Foot-and-Mouth Disease outbreak simulation model.
The model is an adaptation of the Australian Animal Disease Spread Model (AADIS) developed by Graeme Garner & Richard Bradhurst.
This model can be used to evaluate various control options to eradicate the disease. It can also evaluate available resource and vaccine supply issues. EuFMDiS is a powerful, robust and flexible modelling tool that allows countries to evaluate their contingency plan and the impact of control measures. EuFMDis was initially developed with the collaboration of seven central European countries pilot countries of Italy, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Slovenia. New countries are joining now and in the future EuFMDis can be extended to a pan-European modelling environment.
