Animal welfare is recognized as highly relevant to success in international development. It is integral to programmes to improve animal health, to develop livestock productions, to respond to natural disasters where animals are involved, and to improve the fit between the genetic constitution of animals and the environments in which they are kept. FAO has therefore decided to give more explicit and strategic attention to animal welfare and to guide its activities, and has convened this expert meeting. The session was impressively productive and report is of an exceptionally high quality.

This book is the result of collaboration among epidemiological surveillance specialists at all the operational echelons of an epidemiological surveillance network: organisation, training, data management and evaluation. The coordinators of various networks contributed their valuable experience to this practical guide. Part one provides readers with all the methodological elements they need to help create, operate and evaluate an epidemiological surveillance networks in operation. It shows that all networks use the same methodological procedure even though their surveillance subjects and methods vary so widely. This practical guide is aimed at all those responsible for epidemiological surveillance network design, organisation and operation in both the northern and southern hemispheres. It will also be of interest to students and teachers of animal epidemiology. (Co-published with CIRAD, AEEMA and OIE)

Microbiological hazards in fresh leafy vegetables and herbs - Meeting Report

Microbiological Risk Assessment Series No. 14
Rome, 2009, 164 pp., BR, Pb.
ISBN 978-92-5-106118-3

USD 40.00


Problems linked with pathogens in fresh produce, including the associated public health and trade implications, have been reported in a number of countries worldwide. Furthermore, from 1980 to 2004, the global production per annum of fruit and vegetables grew by 94% and they are a critical component of a healthy diet. Reported outbreaks associated with leafy vegetables and herbs have been notable for the wide geographical distribution of the contaminated products, the high numbers of consumers exposed and thus the large number of cases. This meeting addressed the pathways for contamination, survival and persistence of microbiological hazards associated with leafy vegetables and herbs, and the potential management options from primary production through to the consumer. This volume and other in this series, co-published with WHO, contain information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk managers, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, governments and food regulatory agencies, industry and other people or institutions with an interest in the safety of fresh produce and the impact of microbial contamination on public health.

Viruses in food: scientific advice to support risk management activities - Meeting report

Microbiological Risk Assessment Series No. 13
Rome, 2008, 80 pp., Pb.
ISBN 978-92-5-106117-6
ISSN 1726-5274
TC/M/I0451/E
FAO110217
USD 20.00


This report draws attention to the threat of viruses as a risk to public health when they are present in food. Viruses play a major role in the burden of infectious intestinal disease and require special and separate attention because they behave differently from bacteria. In identifying the major routes of viral contamination of foods, this report seeks to highlight those areas which need immediate attention and provide guidance to both risk assessors and risk managers in understanding the challenges to be overcome in effectively addressing the problems associated with foodborne viruses. This volume and other in this series, co-published with WHO, contain information that is useful to both risk assessors and risk managers, the Codex Alimentarius Commission, governments and food regulatory agencies, industry and other people or institutions with an interest in foodborne viruses, their public health impact and approaches for the evaluation and selection of potential control strategies.

Wild birds and avian influenza. An introduction to applied field research and disease sampling techniques (Russian version)

By: Whitworth, D., Newman, S., Mundkur, T., Harris, P.
FAO Animal Production and Health Manual No. 5
Rome, 2007, 120 pp.

The highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 strain has spread from domestic poultry to a large number of species of free-ranging wild birds, including non-migratory birds and migratory birds that can travel thousands of kilometres every year. The regular contact and interaction between poultry and wild birds has increased the urgency of understanding wild bird diseases. This manual contains chapters on the basic ecology of avian influenza and wild birds, capture and marking techniques (ringing, colour marking and satellite telemetry), disease sampling procedures, and field survey and monitoring procedures. Also published in English.
