The first ring is heightened biosecurity at the country’s borders. While the second ring needs to be located around each farm. Individual farms need to limit access to people from other countries unless they have strict biosecurity protocols.
Food safety experts, from the Produce Marketing Association and United Fresh Produce Association, shared best practices and strategies for risk reduction and monitoring and responding to listeria contamination.
This report explores the lessons of an Ebola outbreak through the lens of the US and UN policymakers who were forced to construct an unprecedented response in real time.
If you are interested in finding out more about the culture of biosafety, biosecurity, and responsible conduct, this guide is for you. A U.S. interagency Working Group was established in 2015 to implement the recommendation of the Federal Experts Security Advisory Panel to "create and strengthen a culture that emphasizes biosafety, laboratory biosecurity, and responsible conduct in the life sciences...
This guide provides principles, best practices, and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface.
This guide is based on the experience of SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL. It consists of 3 parts:
1. General information on cholera
2. Before and between epidemics
3. Response to cholera epidemics
Social science can provide information on social risk factors and mechanisms for disease transmission, local cultural interpretations of disease and response interventions, and the functioning of the health system and local structures of power and authority.
As the disease ebbs, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and local health authorities shift their focus to preventing future outbreaks in the southern region of Maradi, most affected by the current epidemic and known as a hotspot for cholera along the border of Niger and Nigeria.
To contain an ebola outbreak, it’s crucial that 100% of the contact list is documented and tracked. If this is broken, then a spread should be expected.
These guidelines include step-by-step instructions to upgrade infection control, prevention, and biosecurity efforts in any hospital, including recommendations on establishing an infection control practitioner to coordinate and implement the guidelines; developing standard operating procedures; creating a training plan; and implementing a surveillance program.
