Training on basic epidemiology applied to livestock production in the tropics
CIRAD, in collaboration with the National Veterinary School of Alfort, already developed a computer assisted learning material in basic epidemiology, Ranema. Based on that experience and using the same approach, that says putting the trainee into different situations, Ranema-Flu module was developed involving different researchers with epidemiological, ornithological or training skills and using E-learning maker © software. It is used as a distance-learning training support in basic epidemiology and also as a support for group training using additional pedagogic supports (complementary exercises and pedagogic guidelines). A specific RANEMA package has been created for HPAI in poultry (see above) and a package about Classical and African Swine Fever will be shortly developed.
In the frame of the training activities of CIRAD within the 5 regional TCPs “Emergency Assistance for early detection and prevention of Avian Influenza”, it was proposed to create a specific module on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, called RANEMA-Flu.
- The trainee will review the general principles for HPAI surveillance based on FAO and OIE guidelines including the concept of targeted and sentinel population surveillance.
- The trainee will be able to determine an appropriate expected prevalence when designing a surveillance protocol for HPAI.
- The trainee will review the objectives and recommendations of the surveillance on vaccinated populations
General objective: provide key element for identification of selected water birds
