Standardizing OUtput-based surveillance to control Non-regulated Diseases of cattle in the EU – COST Action CA17110

SOUND control aims to coordinate, stimulate and support initiatives to explore and implement a widely adaptable, output-based framework applicable to substantiate the confidence of freedom and cost-effectiveness of current surveillance, control or eradication programmes for non-mandatorily regulated cattle diseases in the EU. This will allow a standardised and objective comparison of the output of control programmes between different regions, both from an epidemiological and an economic point of view.
