How did we monitor the implementation of self-declaration standards?
Monitoring the implementation of standards related to self-declaration of animal health status requires building and analysing indicators using various data sources.
What self-declaration indicators did we use to monitor the implementation of these standards?
Several indicators made it possible to monitor the implementation of standards related to self-declarations of animal health status, among them:
Number of self-declarations published by country / compartment / zone
Percentage of Members that have self-declared freedom from a disease out of those that reported absence of the same disease
Number of self-declarations that were inactivated and for which recovery was later claimed
What data sources did we use to build self-declaration indicators?
Two main data sources made it possible to build the monitoring indicators:
Self-declared animal health status of Members: data extracted from WOAH datasets related to the recent and historic self-declarations (2000-2021)
Absence of diseases: data extracted from WAHIS six-monthly reports submitted by Members (2005-2021)
