World Veterinary Congress 2011 – Epidemiology Stream


The World Veterinary Congress turned out to be a most informative and enjoyable event. The epidemiology stream was varied with topics ranging from sero-prevalence surveys in South America to some interesting rabies data from Gauteng and KZN. The guest speaker, Dr Angus Cameron, from AusVet services was inspirational and his talks were often fully attended in the venue. The final workshop he held on various surveillance problems was particularly informative and showed that surveillance techniques don’t always fit into a mould; every scenario requires application of various surveillance methods.
