SHIC Requests Your Input for 2019 Plan of Work Priorities
SHIC Helps Protect the US Swine Herd Health with Information Sharing
December Swine Disease Monitoring Reports
Per the Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) December global disease monitoring report, November was another challenging month for the Chinese authorities and swine industry, as there was a significant expansion of the African swine fever (ASF) epidemic, continuing its southward spread into six new provinces.
The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) continues to prioritize high impact, urgent return on investment projects to monitor, predict, prepare, and respond to emerging diseases. Members of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians are invited and encouraged to provide input into the SHIC 2019 Plan of Work, providing direction for upcoming priorities.
When returning to the United States after visiting a farm or being in contact with animals in a country (or countries) with African swine fever (ASF), or any other foreign animal disease, you should declare this information to US Customs and Border Patrol via written form, airport kiosk, or verbally.
