FAO EMPRES-i Global Animal Disease information System

EMPRES Global Animal Disease Information System (EMPRES-i) is a web-based application that has been designed to support veterinary services by facilitating the organization and access to regional and global disease information. Timely and reliable disease information enhances early warning and response to transboundary and high impact animal diseases, including emergent zoonoses, and supports prevention, improved management and progressive approach to control. The team conducts global surveillance of animal disease pathogens and we follow up disease events of significance in terms of impact at global level, livestock production, food security and public health. Risk assessment is a key activity of the team in Rome.
