Title
Lost in translation : assessing knowledge sources, exchange and effectiveness in animal disease control
Description
Animal and zoonotic diseases cause major environmental, social, health and economic problems globally. If uncontained they have potentially devastating consequences for communities. Containment strategies vary in scale and scope, from planning and prevention policies through to critical outbreak responses. Quick and timely decisions are often required as new information becomes available, at every stage of disease containment, but such information is often compromised by uncertainty. An open, holistic, and interdisciplinary approach to relevant knowledge sources is called for.
