Research on African swine fever – open seminar
Welcome to an open seminar presenting current research from SVA, National Veterinary Institute.
This seminar is dedicated to research on African swine fever (ASF) performed in Sweden and in Uganda. The research in Sweden takes off in the apparent risk for introduction of the diseases during the ongoing epidemic in eastern/central Europe, and the role that wild boar play in this new disease setting. In Uganda ASF is endemic. Research on ASF performed by SVA co-workers during almost ten years has led to insights concerning the importance of local communities for controlling ASF, this aspect of disease control will be explored further in a newly started project.
