INGSA-Asia, in partnership with the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), is running a multi-year project to collate, synthesise and operationalise international best practice in preventing and mitigating zoonotic spillover originating in the live animal supply chain.
A series of expert workshops has resulted in the development of a guidebook of best practice for all stakeholders to better understand the essential elements and barriers to reducing the risks from High Consequence Pathogens (HCP). This will be adapted to practical resources and materials to empower more adaptive, connected, and resilient management and regulatory practices.
INGSA-Asia & NASEM Guidebook on Zoonotic Transmission
Guidebook on Zoonotic Spillover of High-Consequence Pathogens
Published: The Guidebook will be available in March 2024
Summary: The Guidebook will be the primary outcome of the project and will synthesise regional and international best practice into a resource that can be used to underpin and adapt education, professional development and policy advisory material for specific regions and contexts.
The Guidebook is currently in production and undergoing expert review.
We hope that regional partners will work with the project team to initiate local or regional workshops or events to help disseminate the findings across the whole live animal supply chain.
Workshop Reports Available
In 2022 and 2023, INGSA-Asia and NASEM ran five expert workshops to synthesise best practice in the field of zoonotic transmission. These featured leading researchers from around world and across southeast Asia.
