Featured publication: Decision-support tool for prevention and control of Rift Valley fever epizootics in the Greater Horn of Africa

The August 2010 supplement of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene features a decision-support tool for the prevention and control of Rift Valley fever in the Greater Horn of Africa.

The tool was developed under a project managed by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and funded by the Emergency Coordination Office for Africa of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

It was developed by a consultative group for Rift Valley fever decision support comprising individuals from FAO, ILRI, the Kenya and Tanzania Departments of Veterinary Services, United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), African Union-Interafrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR), Vétérinaires sans Frontières (VSF) Suisse and VETAID.
