Monthly Animal Health Report

 

Each month, the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (DVFA) publishes the Danish Monthly Animal Health Report.

The purpose of these reports is to inform about the animal health status in Denmark.


The content of the Monthly Animal Health Report

The Monthly Animal Health Reports are written in a very static format. The reports always contain 4 pages, and the content of each page is described below.

  • On the front page of the report is a map showing the two Regional Veterinary and Food Administrations (East and West) in Denmark. 
  • On page 2 and 3 of the report are two tables that give an overview over the provisional animal health status in Denmark in the relevant year. In order to make the tables easy to interpret, the symbols and abbreviations used by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) are also applied in these tables. The provisional animal health status may change during a year in accordance with the confirmation of disease occurrence. 
  • The table on page 4 presents the number of outbreaks in each Regional Veterinary and Food Administration in the relevant month. For each disease, the total number of outbreaks per month and the cumulative number of outbreaks in the relevant year are also available in this table.

Changes in the format of the Monthly Animal Health Reports

The format of the reports was changed in January 2002, because the DVFA wished to include more information in the reports. In the new format, the animal health status and disease control measures applied in Denmark are described for all diseases that are notifiable in Denmark.

The layout of the reports was slightly changed in August 2004, due to changes of the relevant department to Ministry of Family and Consumer Affairs.

In January 2005, minor changes in the layout of the reports were made in connection with changes in the diseases that are notifiable in Denmark.

In January 2006, minor changes in the layout of the reports were made due to the changes in OIE disease names, codes and categories.

In January 2008, minor changes in the layout of the reports were made due to the change of the administrative divisions of Denmark and change in November 2007 of the relevant department to Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

In January 2009, minor changes in the layout of the reports were made due to changes of which diseases are notifiable diseases in Denmark.

In January 2010, minor changes in the layout of the reports were made due to the change of the administrative divisions of Denmark.

In September 2010, minor changes in the layout of the reports were made due to changes of which diseases are notifiable diseases in Denmark.
