Regional Animal Disease Surveillance and Control Network
Entry ID: radiscon


Summary
Abstract: RADISCON seeks to develop an Animal Disease Surveillance and Control
Network through a process of strengthening of veterinary
investigation, animal disease information and laboratory services,
continued professional development and improved professional
communication between neighbouring countries.

RADISCON is a joint FAO/IFAD endeavour targeted at 29 nations located
in North Africa, the Sahel, the Horn of Africa, the Middle East and
the Arab Gulf, which aim is to promote animal disease surveillance
within and among countries. RADISCON implementation started in June
1996. It is hoped that the ongoing activities will increase the
efficiency of control programmes.

The project is assisting each individual country to establish its
National Animal Disease Surveillance System (NADSS) and communication
between participating nations is taking place electronically, where
possible, using electronic mail facilities.

The information was taken from
"http://www.fao.org/ag/aga/agah/id/radiscon/Default.htm"

RADISCON developed prototype data collection forms, namely RADISCON
Disease Outbreak report (RADDOR) and RADISCON Monthly Report (RADM),
for contagious diseases, as vehicles for data exchange within and
between countries.
