Capacity building: Outbreak investigation & response management


Prompt and appropriate responses are essential to effectively control transboundary animal diseases (TADs) and prevent their further spread, which can cause serious socio-economic consequences. Planning outbreak investigation and control activities ensure that a country is prepared to respond when disease outbreaks occur and there are sufficient resources and capacities to conduct the response activities in the face of an outbreak.

The World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) organised a virtual Training of Trainers (ToT) programme to build capacities in outbreak investigation and response management in partnership with Epicentre, Massey University, New Zealand, and Animal Health Works.

The ToT is a self-paced virtual training programme organised using a Massey University online streaming platform. The duration of the training was 5 weeks, from 31 May to 8 July 2021.
