Summary :

The need for economic assessments of animal diseases and their management has stimulated a number of initiatives over the last four decades, but they all have their origins in the establishment of the Society of Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine and the International Society of Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics in the 1970s. These initiatives stemmed from the pioneering work of four academic researchers, namely, Peter Ellis, who founded the Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics Research Unit at Reading University, Roger Morris (Massey University), who pioneered data-capture and analysis systems, Bernard Toma (French National Veterinary School at Maisons Alfort), who founded the Association for the Epidemiological Study of Animal Diseases, and Tim Carpenter, who carried out some of the earliest work in the field at the University of California, Davis. The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) recognised this early work in the use of economics in animal health and, in 1999, published a special edition of the Scientific and Technical Review edited by veterinary epidemiologist and agricultural economist Prof. Brian Perry.
