WG1 – Characteristics of existing control programmes

Overview

WG 1 will try to identify all control and eradication programmes undertaken within COST action countries for cattle diseases that are currently not regulated at the EU level, providing a unique overview of current control programmes.

We will characterise these programmes; including their design as well as epidemiological and economic backgrounds. Furthermore, we will identify stakeholders associated with these control programmes to promote future consortium engagement as our project develops and outcomes emerge.

Tasks

  • Overview of controlled non EU-regulated diseases in cattle.
  • Development of a handbook or wiki page describing these programmes.
  • Creation of contact list with relevant stakeholders.
  • In cooperation with WG 2 and 3, provide programme characteristics as the basis for an output-based framework for control programme evaluation.
