SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) EpiNet is a proposed sub-regional Epidemiology Network under the framework of the Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD) in the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (RAP).
SAARC EpiNet South Asia Animal Disease Information System (SADIS) provides a proposed platform and framework for SAARC member countries to share information relevant for transboundary animal disease (TAD)s control on the following aspects:
- Animal disease outbreak recording
- Animal disease outbreak reporting and information dissemination
- Documents/articles repository and calendar of events
SADIS is being used in a pilot project by National Focal Points from Bhutan and Nepal to determine its suitability.
