The European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD)

Knowledge Bank

What is the Knowledge Bank?

The EuFMD recognises that once trained, or during their training, audiences need access to informal training resources, tools and job aids to assist them in their activities.

The knowledge bank is sorted according to topics that include laboratory diagnosis, contingency planning, epidemiology, surveillance, progressive control and vaccination. You may also search the database according to resource type, or language of the resource.

Tools for national training
The knowledge bank supports national veterinary services to deliver training on FMD preparedness and control, with a special category of “Training Tools”.

EuFMD recommended resources
EuFMD’s experts have identified a number of particularly high quality resources which are labelled as “EuFMD recommended”.
