Working Groups

Monitoring and Analysis Working Group

This group is charged with assessing domestic and foreign production disease risk using information from a variety of sources. The outcome of this assessment is the on-going prioritization of the Swine Disease Matrix.

It is also responsible for monitoring and advising the Swine Health Monitoring Project and the use of information technologies to reach the Swine Health Monitoring Project goals. In addition, it is responsible for development and advice for on-going projects to monitor domestic diseases affecting swine health and the data analysis projects that will support on-farm, prospective producer decision making.

Preparedness and Response Working Group

This group is charged with oversight of the Swine Disease Matrix and other preparedness or response research. It reviews the analysis of the Matrix capabilities and is responsible for funding research to fulfill the Matrix objectives.

It is also responsible for advising and oversight of SHIC’s role in the emerging swine diseases response plan. That includes the roles and responsibilities of Rapid Response Team deployment in response to an emerging swine health disease and for the information and analysis necessary to support the appropriate pork producer and pork industry response to emerging swine diseases.
