Optimizing emergency vaccination strategies for FMD: use of simulation models
Presenters: Mark Hovari, David Paton
Date: 24 May 2017

Summary: The webinar focuses on examining case studies that model vaccination strategies. The main aim of the presentation is to make contingency planners and vaccination specialists aware of how to apply the outcomes of different simulation models to aid operational planning for emergency vaccination. The focus therefore is to provide an FMD control expert perspective on the practical use of models.

Market impact of foot-and-mouth disease control strategies: A UK case study
Presenters: Siyi Feng, Melissa McLaws                              
Date: 7 December 2017   

Summary: Economic impact assessments of foot-and-mouth disease control strategies are often based on benefit–cost framework, which provide detailed information on the changes in profit for a farm or budget implications for a government. However, this framework cannot capture price effects caused by changes in production due to culling of animals; access to international markets; and consumers’ reaction. These three impacts combine to affect equilibrium within commodity markets. In light of the increasing interest in the use of vaccination in controlling FMD in countries previously free from the disease, this study uses a partial equilibrium modelling framework based on outputs from an epidemiology model to demonstrate the potential market consequences of alternative FMD control strategies in the case of the UK.
