Border-Check: A Transboundary Model for Classical Swine
Fever in the United States and Canada
Friday, March 3, 2017 AT 10:00AM-11:00AM CT / 11:00AM-12:00PM ET
Transboundary animal diseases are those of significant economic, trade or food security importance that require cooperation between countries to control. Classical Swine Fever is one of the top diseases of concern, alongside foot-and-mouth disease and highly pathogenic avian influenza. FPDI has been developing epidemic simulation models to help address research questions regarding the potential spread and subsequent control of transboundary animal diseases. This presentation will discuss results from an epidemic simulation model of Classical Swine Fever used to examine the impact of US-Canadian border closures on disease spread and trade.
