In recent years, the world has seen many infectious disease epidemics such as avian flu, H1N1, and BSE. Animal disease epidemics threaten not only animal lives, but also the environment, agriculture, the economy, food security, and human health and life. In April, 2010, Miyazaki prefecture experienced an outbreak of foot and mouth disease, but it was successfully contained in about 4 months. TDLC created a video introducing the lessons learned from responding to the epidemic in collaboration with the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health, Japan’s National Center for Neurology and Psychiatry and Rakuno Gakuen University with contributions by the World Organisation for Animal Health and the Miyazaki Prefectural Government.
