The ‘Outbreak Decision Support Tools’ project builds on an existing computer simulation model (Australian Animal Disease Spread – AADIS). This project will enhance and use the AADIS model to better inform strategic decision-making around managing a foot-and-mouth-disease (FMD) outbreak.
Researchers will work with government and industry stakeholders to design and test response strategies for FMD through simulations and interactive workshops.
The project aims to provide robust guidelines for responding to an FMD outbreak, including approaches to post-outbreak surveillance and management options for vaccinated animals, to support proof-of-freedom and a faster return to trade.
