Les zones où il n’existent pas de données: Approches participatives en d’épidémiologie vétérinaire dans les zones pastorales de la Corne de l’Afrique
This paper provides an overview of recent experiences with the use of participatory approaches and methods to understand livestock diseases in pastoral areas. These experiences include the emergence of participatory epidemiology as a distinct branch of veterinary epidemiology, and most recently, studies on the validity and reliability of participatory methods. The paper discusses how participatory assessment can complement conventional systems of veterinary inquiry and outlines plans to integrate conventional systems of veterinary partipatory epidemiology into national veterinary epidemiology units.
