The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) has commissioned Civic Consulting to conduct a study on the Cost of National Prevention Systems for Animal Diseases and Zoonoses in developing and transition countries. The aims of the study are twofold: (a) estimating the “peace time” costs of Veterinary Services allowing early detection and rapid response to emerging and re-emerging diseases in different regions, economies, animal health systems and eco-systems; and (b) developing economic indicators within the OIE-PVS Tool. The study is based on results of in-depth research in nine OIE member countries.
This study was commissioned by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and co-funded by the World Bank and the European Union. The views and recommendations presented in this study are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the OIE or one of the co-funding institutions.
