    • Description:
      This framework outlines a proposed start-to-finish approach to improve the prevention of anthrax outbreaks. Outbreak prevention is achieved primarily through vaccination of livestock against anthrax, which is the principle method for prevention and control of anthrax in animals and subsequent anthrax in humans. Surveillance of animal and human cases is important to identify suspect cases, estimate incidence, and evaluate the impact of control programs. Enhancing outbreak response is key to rapidly implementing control programs and halting the outbreak. Laboratory diagnostic capacity at biosafety level 2 is critical to the rapid identification of animal and human cases. These steps augment effective and efficient vaccination of livestock to prevent and control anthrax. The principles and methods described in this framework can apply to any anthrax-endemic country, and can be modified to meet specific areas needing improvement. As epidemiological information is accrued about a given region, this framework can be expanded to include detailed protocols, system descriptions, and in-depth evaluations.
