A review of economic tools for the assessment of animal disease outbreaks

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This paper demonstrates how currently underutilised economic modelling techniques can enrich the analysis of animal disease problems. Increasingly, analyses of animal health programmes are expected to address a range of economic and social questions. These expectations can be addressed by better integration of epidemiological modelling with economic techniques whose application to animal health has not been thoroughly discussed in past reviews. This paper describes a range of economic models that can be applied in animal health research and provides guidance for determining the appropriate method given the issues at hand. The complexity of some of these approaches underlines the importance of multidisciplinary research and education.
