Good Emergency Management Practice

EMPRES has developed GEMP as a mult-media programme, available on CD and the FAO/EMPRES website, to promote the concept of a Code of Practice in dealing with animal disease emergencies.

Good Emergency management practice in animal health is the sum total of organised procedures, structures and resource management that lead to early detection of disease or infection in an animal population, prediction of the likely spread, prompt limitation, targeted control and elimination with subsequent re-establishment of verifiable freedom from infection in accordance with the International Animal Health Code.
