The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is sharing the availability of the Swine Hemorrhagic Fever Surveillance System evaluation brief and dashboard. The brief and dashboard both monitor surveillance data related to African swine fever and classical swine fever.
The increased spread of ASF and CSF around the world in 2019 led to the creation of an integrated surveillance plan to enhance vigilance for both diseases and improve the country's emergency preparedness. APHIS evaluated the effectiveness of the surveillance plan in meeting outlined goals one year after its implementation and highlighted their findings in an evaluation brief. The report highlights the plan's success and outlines areas for improvement.
Additionally, the agency published an interactive surveillance dashboard for ASF and CSF, to provide national-level views of surveillance data and information about samples that have been submitted for testing. APHIS uses this data to strengthen disease detection capabilities, enhance outbreak preparedness and support claims of disease freedom in this country. The dashboard is updated quarterly and relies on generous stakeholder participation for timely and accurate data. To maintain essential stakeholder inputs, personally identifiable information is protected and highly local information is not displayed.
For best results, please use the latest version of Microsoft Edge when accessing the dashboard.
If you have any questions about the evaluation brief or dashboard, please contact via email.
