STAR-IDAZ IRC yearly State-of-the-art Report

The STAR−IDAZ(1) International Research Consortium (IRC) is a global initiative aimed at coordinating research to assist in the development of strategies and control tools for priority animal diseases.

The expert groups of the IRC perform gap analyses on priority diseases, and draft research roadmaps that provide focus on where research is most needed, identifying bottlenecks and critical gaps.

The Global Burden of Animal Diseases (GBADs) programme will collaborate with the IRC expert groups to identify research needs when attempting to estimate the burden of animal diseases. The participation of the GBADs programme will enable IRC partners to focus on the task of providing important baseline data to establish the cost–benefits of new strategies.
