Improving emerging infectious disease surveillance   ongoing
Thinking forward through the past: Linking science, social science and the humanities to inform the sustainable reduction of endemic disease in British livestock farming 2017 ongoing Endemic livestock diseases pose a major impediment to livestock health, welfare, productivity and profit. They can also potentially undermine human health by encouraging antibiotic use and antimicrobial resistance. These diseases are not new. Many of the tools to tackle them already exist, and yet they remain a problem. The project aims to explain why, and to work out what could be done about them.
