Just published : ‘Strengthening health decision-making at the territorial level: operational support for spatial multi-criteria evaluation’ (June 2018 – Issue 46 of ‘Perspective’, CIRAD policy brief) It is now possible to map diseases in regions for which epidemiological data are scarce. Spatial multi-criteria evaluation is a rigorous method that is quick to implement, and was developed by CIRAD and its partners.
Animal health and veterinary public health policymakers are still relatively unfamiliar with this method, but it is suited to regions with little access to reliable epidemiological data, such as low-income countries in the South or disease-free areas.
Animal diseases and zoonoses - infectious diseases that can be transmitted between animals and humans - are a global socio-economic and public health problem: ensuring the surveillance and control of these diseases means identifying high risk areas in both North and South.
This series of 4-page summaries published by CIRAD which presents novel ideas or policies on development issues of strategic importance for countries in the South: food security, land tenure, climate change, energy security, forest management, standards, etc.
Authors : Annelise Tran and François Roger.
