The EuFMD programme and its contribution to GF-TADS in the European neighbourhood Jean-Luc Angot and Keith Sumption Acknowledgements: EC DG-SANTE Program 2013-14: 4m (EC), 1.5 m (other MS) Basis for EuFMD actions Legal Base (Constitution) Strategic Plan (3 Pillars) adopted 2013 Program 2013-14 : 75% funded by EC, 25% by MS and others GF-TADS and agreement on the 24 month Phase III Work plan, September 2013

Executive Committee with EC, FAO and OIE for Executive decisions on programme development Strong record of timely and efficient delivery of projects Dedicated professional team funded by member states Feet on the ground close working relationship with beneficiaries EuFMD EuFMD Role Intergovernmental body working on behalf of its members, supported (75%) by DGSANTE, based in FAO, and in coordination with OIE 1. Co-ordinated actions to reduce risk and consequence of FMD incursions to member states by 1.

Biorisk management Standards for FMD laboratories in Europe Database on holdings of national vaccine and antigen banks (surveyed every 2 years). Continuous provision of up to date information on the FMD circulation across the globe (antigen bank decisions/risk assessment purposes) Emergency response capacity (Emergency Fund: 0.5m) EuFMD The focus of the assistance depends on the FMD status of the country 1. Good Emergency Management Practises (GEMP) FMD free countries - and non-free at high risk of virus incursions Contingency Plans validated through testing (exercises) Early warning

Early detection (passive, risk based surveillance) Early and effective response (tested) 2. Progressive Control Pathway for FMD (PCP-FMD) Countries not officially free of FMD Risk based, focus on national strategic plans (accepted GF-TADS process) Prepares for entry into OIE endorsement and recognition system EuFMD What has been achieved under the Phase III Programme with EC support Emergency Prevention and Management - improved capacity Revived capacity and expertise : Over 300 veterinarians from 50 countries trained in FMD in the field Over 500 veterinarians completed e-learning on FMD in 2014-15

Tutored e-learning courses in 2014- 15 in English, Russian, Spanish, French, Serbian-Croatian 48 countries Western Balkan countries + Moldova: two multi-country simulation exercises 2015 THRACE region: continuous. 3 country programme to sustain confidence in FMD freedom, integrated with LSD, PPR and SGP surveillance Contingency Planning and Modelling Networks all MS What has been achieved under the Phase III Programme with EC support Progressive Control of FMD reducing risk Progress - West Eurasia Roadmap; several countries progressing in management level for FMD control

Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey assisted in PCP progress (Stage recognition /progress) 2014/15 Middle-East FMD Roadmap, REMESA: Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, assisted in PCP progress 2014/15 REMESA: emergency response (2013-14) and training in FMD management (e-learning and simulation exercises) Lessons Learnt Failure to address risks results in a high risk of failure of FMD Control Plans. It can take more than one year to develop a National Risk Based Strategic Plan that has national ownership and commitment. Its worth taking time! It is difficult to to change the administrative mindset from counting inputs to monitoring outcomes. The system to collect, validate, analyse data on implementation and the impact of an FMD control plan needs to be created. The need to build up FMD control from the bottom-up. The national VS may not

have skills to engage the field level: district, local vets, farmer associations, NGOs. Training the trainers is not enough. We need also help them - and make it easier and less costly to train national staff. Training managers is needed PCP is a good entry to management training. We need to greatly scale up educational initiatives under GF-TADS there is a huge unmet demand EuFMD, EC, FA and OIE - we can deliver a lot when we work together Incursions of FMDV to the European neighborhood: From more than one geo-political region Mainly from virus pools 3 and 4, more recently from Pool 2 Past 8 years (2007-15) 200 7

Demand driven potential for training courses to be recognised (accredited) training the next generation of TADS managers.

Long term importance for countries to have management as well as technical skills in their senior managers Real Time Training in FMD outbreak investigation Overall aim : to maintain (and increase) core expertise in every MS on FMD recognition and response 3 training credits per course ExCom87 Cascade Training Foot and Mouth Disease

Clinical Examination Assisting NATIONAL training programmes - Train AND assist the trainer It is important to have a systematic approach to examining animals suspected of foot and mouth disease. Write down your findings as you examine animals. A prepared form may help you do this efficiently. Firstly, take a clinical history from the farmer: What clinical signs have they noticed? Lameness, drooling, not eating, any deaths, any abortions? When did the signs start?

Which animals have been affected? How many? Which ones are the most recent cases? Next, observe the animals from a distance: General demeanour/stance Salivation/increased jaw movement Lameness/shifting weight Finally carry out a clinical examination of as many animals as possible to fully assess the situation: Ensure good restraint-remember FMD is painful Take the animal's temperature Examine the likely sites of vesicles thoroughly - muzzle, mouth, feet including the interdigital space (clean off dirt) and udder Enquire about milk yield if appropriate

Record your findings for each animal, including animal identity no. Lesion ageing Lesion ageing is important for epidemiological investigations. Lesion ageing allows you to establish a likely time period in which clinical signs first appeared, and from this, the likely time period in which infection took place, and when viral shedding could have begun. When carrying out lesion ageing in order to determine the likely date of infection of a group of animals, it is important to examine all animals, looking for the oldest lesions. For diagnostic sampling search for the most recent case with the freshest lesions. ExCom87 Day of Clinical Disease

Appearance of lesion Day 1 Blanching of epithelium followed by formation of fluid filled vesicle. Day 2 Freshly ruptured vesicles characterised by raw epithelium, a clear edge to the lesion and no deposition of fibrin. Day 3 Lesions start to lose their sharp demarcation and bright red colour. Deposition of fibrin starts to occur.

Day 4 Considerable fibrin deposition has occurred and regrowth of epithelium is evident at the periphery of the lesion. Day 7 Extensive scar tissue formation and healing has occurred. Some fibrin deposition is usually still present. Online FMD Emergency Preparation Course Who?
