Management of animal and animal product movement is an essential component of control programs for trans-boundary animal diseases (TAD). This project, focusing on critical trans-boundary diseases (highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and classical swine fever (CSF) in eastern Indonesia and foot and mouth disease (FMD) and CSF in eastern Australia), strengthened capacity for effective disease control by identifying livestock trade patterns that were high risk for disease transmission and by supporting formulation and pilot implementation of policy designed to restrict, manage and/or monitor these livestock movements.
