Decisions to invest in resources to prepare for transboundary animal disease emergencies are challenging. In countries like Australia where outbreaks of transboundary animal diseases occur infrequently, it may not be cost-effective to pre-emptively employ large numbers of personnel and invest in stockpiles of material. This presentation will review Australia’s 25-year program of epidemiological modelling for transboundary diseases. It will also discuss examples where epidemiological modelling, simulation exercises and performance assessments/standards have been used to guide contingency planning, investment in vaccine banks, laboratory management in emergencies, and surveillance for diseases such as foot and mouth disease, highly pathogenic avian influenza and equine influenza.
