PLOS 22/02/16 The Economic Impact of Eradicating Peste des Petits Ruminants: A Benefit-Cost Analysis. Abstract Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is an important cause of mortality and production loss among sheep and goats in the developing world.
Despite control efforts in a number of countries, it has continued to spread across Africa and Asia, placing an increasing burden on the livelihoods of livestock keepers and on veterinary resources in affected countries. Given the similarities between PPR and rinderpest, and the lessons learned from the successful global eradication of rinderpest, the eradication of PPR seems appealing, both eliminating an important disease and improving the livelihoods of the poor in developing countries. We conducted a benefit-cost analysis to examine the economic returns from a proposed programme for the global eradication of PPR.

Economic evaluation of animal disease control strategies: Application of a relational database system Maria Näther, Ludwig Theuvsen Abstract The outbreak of an animal disease such as swine fever can have far-reaching economic consequences which affect not only livestock owners but also upstream and downstream industries and other stakeholders (such as veterinary agencies).
Swine fever is the animal disease with the most significant economic impact in the area of pig production worldwide. Until now it was almost impossible to calculate the macroeconomic impact of a swine fever outbreak in European countries such as Germany.

ENSO, El Niño southern oscillation. The resurgence of infectious diseases of zoonotic origin observed in recent years imposes a major morbidity/mortality burden worldwide, and also a major economic burden that extends beyond pure medical costs. The resurgence and epidemiology of zoonoses are complex and dynamic, being influenced by varying parameters that can roughly be categorized as human-related, pathogen-related, and climate/environment-related; however, there is significant interplay between these factors.

Abstract According to international treaties, phytosanitary measures against introduction and spread of invasive plant pests must be justified by a science-based pest risk analysis (PRA).
Part of the PRA consists of an assessment of potential economic consequences. This paper evaluates the main available techniques for quantitative economic impact assessment: partial budgeting, partial equilibrium analysis, input output analysis, and computable general equilibrium analysis. These techniques differ in width of scope with respect to market mechanisms (relationships between supply, demand, and prices), and linkages between agriculture and other sectors of the economy. As a consequence, techniques differ in their ability to assess direct and indirect (e.g. economy-wide) effects of pest introduction. Keywords.

Abstract Since 1996, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cattle has been linked to a new variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD), a fatal brain disease in man.
This paper assessed the cost-effectiveness of BSE control strategies instituted by the European Commission. In a Monte Carlo simulation model, a non-intervention baseline scenario was compared to three intervention strategies: removal of specified risk materials from slaughter animals, post-mortem testing for BSE and the culling of feed and age cohorts of BSE cases.
The food risk in the baseline scenario ranged from 16.98 lost life years in 2002 to 2.69 lost life years in 2005. Removing specified risk materials removal practices, post-mortem testing and post-mortem testing plus cohort culling reduced this risk with 93%, 82.7% and 83.1%.

A cost–benefit analysis of culling badgers to control bovine tuberculosis. Abstract Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is an important economic problem.
The incidence of TB in cattle herds has steadily risen in the UK, and badgers are strongly implicated in spreading disease. Since the mid-1970s the UK government has adopted a number of badger culling strategies to attempt to reduce infection in cattle. Economic evaluation of bovine brucellosis and tuberculosis eradication programmes.
Abstract We applied social cost-benefit analysis to the economic evaluation of the bovine brucellosis and bovine tuberculosis eradication programmes carried out by the public eradication authority for mountain areas in the Spanish Central Pyrenees.
We considered only the effects on animal health and production. We also evaluated several hypotheses corresponding to the different sanitary situations of two valleys studied. The results were different for the two disease programmes. The brucellosis programme was economically efficient over a sufficiently long time frame, but the bovine tuberculosis programme was not. A factor having the greatest influence on the economic efficiency of the programmes was the initial prevalence of the disease in the two valleys studied. Keywords. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet.

PLOS 08/03/11 Evaluation of Cost-Effective Strategies for Rabies Post-Exposure Vaccination in Low-Income Countries. Abstract Background Prompt post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is essential in preventing the fatal onset of disease in persons exposed to rabies. Unfortunately, life-saving rabies vaccines and biologicals are often neither accessible nor affordable, particularly to the poorest sectors of society who are most at risk and upon whom the largest burden of rabies falls. Increasing accessibility, reducing costs and preventing delays in delivery of PEP should therefore be prioritized. Methodology/Principal Findings We analyzed different PEP vaccination regimens and evaluated their relative costs and benefits to bite victims and healthcare providers. Conclusions/Significance We conclude that a universal switch to ID delivery would improve the affordability and accessibility of PEP for bite victims, leading to a likely reduction in human rabies deaths, as well as being economical for healthcare providers.
