Le réseau régional AnimalRisk : de la surveillance à la recherche dans l'Océan Indien

Abstract : The Animal Risk regional network: surveillance and research in the Indian Ocean. To meet the challenges of emerging diseases in the Indian Ocean region, in 2009 animal health stakeholders set up the Animal Risk-OI network, designed to provide technical and scientific support to surveillance systems and to suggest ways of improving health risk control in the area. The network is supported by OIE referring bodies for the Indian Ocean—veterinary services and animal health research organizations. Animal Risk-OI is not intended to replace current monitoring systems but to help consider arising issues through bimonthly webconferences, annual meetings and quarterly newsletters, and to provide information for research aiming to clarify the epidemiology of certain diseases and recommend suitable control measures. This paper presents the preliminary findings following the monitoring and investigation of diseases considered by network partners to be of top priority. Apart from pursuing synergy between surveillance and research activities, the network aims to bridge the gap between animal and human health to instigate ajoint, standardized approach to the assessment and control of health risks in the Indian Ocean region.
