Introduction to the Progressive Control Pathway

This course introduces the PCP in more detail. It has six modules which aim to answer common questions related to the PCP. We start by introducing the challenge of FMD control, and how risk based approaches can be used to make best use of the limited resources available to us to control the disease. Then, we introduce the principles and standards of the PCP, and outline typical activities carried out under the PCP's different stages. We discuss the procedures which are used to determine a country's current PCP stage, and then finally we try to answer the question, what is my role in FMD control?

Time required: 6 hours          

Prerequisite knowledge:  Please study "What is the Progressive Control Pathway" before starting this course.
