Transboundary Animal Diseases: Assessment of socio-economic impacts and institutional responses
Otte, M.J., Nugent, R. and McLeod, A., Food and Agriculture Organization Livestock Information and Policy Branch, AGAL
This is the ninth of a series of ‘Livestock Policy Discussion Papers’. 
Surveillance, detection and response: managing emerging diseases at national and international levels
K. Ben Jebara, Animal Health Information Department, World Organisation for Animal Health,
 The paper describes the existing international early warning systems and response mechanisms.
DNA-based Molecular Diagnostic Techniques: Research Needs for Standardization and Validation of the Detection of Aquatic Animal Pathogens and Diseases, Issue 395 (Google e-book)
Peter Walker, Rohana P. Subasinghe, FAO

In efforts to limit transboundary movement of pathogens and reduce the economic and socioeconomic impact of disease in aquaculture, there is considerable scope for more effective use of DNA-based methods of pathogen detection. 

Global perspective for foot and mouth disease control
M.M. Rweyemamu, V.M. Astudillo
The world distribution of foot and mouth disease (FMD) is almost a mirror image of the global economic structure. The authors conclude that there is sufficient knowledge of FMD to make an international initiative for the progressive control of FMD a viable objective
Probable Person-to-Person Transmission of Avian Influenza A (H5N1)
Kumnuan Ungchusa et al.
During 2004, a highly pathogenic avian influenza A (H5N1) virus caused poultry disease in eight Asian countries and infected at least 44 persons, killing 32. The authors investigated possible person-to-person transmission in a family cluster of the disease in Thailand.
Rinderpest and Peste des Petits Ruminants: Virus Plagues of Large and Small Ruminants (Google eBook)
William P. Taylor

Rinderpest and Peste des Petits Ruminants tells the story of how, by the year 2010, scientists are set to globally eradicate one of the great historic plagues that has ravaged human livestock for centuries. 

A European survey of antimicrobial susceptibility among zoonotic and commensal bacteria isolated from food-producing animals
Bywater et al., EASSA Study Group
The potential for transfer of antimicrobial resistance from enteric zoonotic bacteria of food animals to the human population is a cause of concern. Programmes to monitor resistance are, therefore, essential.
Emerging Zoonoses
Frederick A. Murphy, University of California
Special Issue on Zoonoses. In the past few years, emergent disease episodes have increased; nearly all have involved zoonotic or species-jumping infectious agents.
Standard Methods and Rules (SMR) (presentation)
Workshop Discussion

A Plan for Coordinated Prevention and Control of Trade Related Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs).

The Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases
The Global Framework for Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs) is a joint FAO/OIE initiative, which combines the strengths of both organisations to achieve agreed common objectives.
Laboratory surveillance for prevention and control of foodborne zoonoses
Busani et al., Dipartimento di Sanità Alimentare ed Animale

Enter-Net is an example of an international laboratory based surveillance network which contribute largely to European foodborne zoonosis surveillance.
