Disease surveillance in England and Wales

It is drawn from scanning surveillance information, data and reports produced by the APHA Veterinary Investigation Centres and non-APHA partner postmortem examination service providers contributing to the Veterinary Investigation Diagnosis Analysis (VIDA) database and complying with standardised diagnostic and laboratory testing criteria. The international horizon-scanning summaries are produced by the Defra/APHA International Disease Monitoring team, notifiable disease reports by the APHA Veterinary Exotic and Notifiable Disease Unit, and threat analysis by the cross-agency Veterinary Risk Group.
