Session V The cross-border movement of animal pathogens can lead to dramatic social and economic consequences. Therefore countries implement prevention measures (e.g. surveillance, border controls and trade restrictions) to reduce the probability of entry of new pathogens. However, resources available for such risk mitigation measures are limited, especially considering the large number of potential source areas and different pathways of entry of the pathogens. We propose a simple and easy-to-use tool to monitor the risk of introduction of foot and mouth and similar transboundary (FAST) animal diseases (Peste des Petits Ruminants, Lumpy Skin Disease, Rift Valley Fever, Sheep and Goat Pox) with the aim of assisting health authorities to identify the most likely routes and source countries for the introduction of these diseases.
