Scénarios alternatifs pour l'amélioration de l'efficience du système de surveillance de la brucellose bovine en France

Abstract : Abstract Alternative scenarios for improving the efficiency of the bovine brucellosis surveillance system in France Surveillance systems for exotic animal diseases aim to identify any introductions and to support the disease-free status. In a context of decreasing resources, evaluating surveillance efficiency – i.e. detection sensitivity versus cost – is essential to help stakeholders make informed decisions about funding allocation. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of the French bovine brucellosis surveillance system using stochastic scenario tree models. The current surveillance system, which includes mandatory abortion notification, annual serological testing in all herds, and selected controls of purchased cattle, meets the detection objectives of the European regulation. However, an alternative scenario including mandatory notification of series of abortions and serological screening in selected high-risk herds was predicted to be more efficient. Implementing these types of changes, while complying with European specifications for disease-free status, would strongly reduce annual surveillance costs. These savings could be reinvested in additional measures to improve the surveillance system.
