Identification and registration system is a tool for disease control and under current conditions where the disease is endemic, it is essential for sustainable and effective control of brucellosis. It has to be assured that the data are entered into the database in a timely manner. In addition, the I&R Unit and the NVEU must maintain close collaboration to evaluate and analyze data to enable them to take appropriate corrective measures. The PAZA project will assist the deployment of the updated ADI RUDA database. Once this is achieved, in the first phase of implementation of the control strategy, the database may be used to issue animal health and movement certificates and in subsequent years to establish a minimum target for vaccination. In the future, when ‘test and slaughter’ commences, the individual animal identification numbers will be the basis for individual identification of positive animals and the implementation movement control.
