Foot-and-mouth And Similar Transboundary animal diseases

OS20

Livelihoods @ risk in a FASTer world

27-30 October 2020. Marseille, France

European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease

In recent years, Foot-and-mouth And Similar Transboundary animal diseases ("FAST") have made frequent and unprecedented inter-continental and inter-regional  incursions that have not always been contained. This has affected the livelihoods of millions of livestock keepers and placed new demands on those working in public and private delivery of animal health services. 

 

How have the approaches and tools adapted to these events?  What is being done to better forecast FAST disease spread, to target surveillance and control measures, and to communicate risks?  How can livestock business and livelihoods be protected - and maintained, at every level, in regions coping with persistence of FAST diseases, or frequent  re-introductions?  How can we better integrate this intelligence into national, regional and even farm level biosecurity and risk mitigation actions, given the economic climate and environmental drivers for movements of animals and animal products from regions affected by FAST diseases?

OS20 is a multi-day meeting, with two distinct parts. The first focuses on Foot-and-mouth disease. The second considers how best we can use the intelligence on animal movements and drivers of disease spread for smarter and  FASTer risk mitigation. 

 

Despite the impact of COVID19 and the uncertainties it causes for planning and travel,  we have decided that we will not postpone the OS20 - we believe we can find a way to run the Scientific Meeting, using our experience in managing virtual meetings and workshops as a back-up and alongside the face-to-face (F2F) Conference. Therefore, be assured we WILL find a way to meet, and we also believe that some travel will be possible in October.  Further, there is so much being learnt from COVID for FAST disease management - and from each other, on how to work efficiently without travel and on biosecurity and behaviour change - that is so relevant to discuss.  

Please bear with us as we work out the details  - we aim to provide a flexibility between the F2F and virtual conference options, knowing that each person will have some restrictions to plan - and travel. 

Register your interest now, to keep in touch, and do plan to participate F2F or virtually, with us in Marseille!
