Integrated Modelling of Foodborne Disease Risk in Emerging Chicken Food Systems

Integrated modelling of foodborne disease risk in emerging chicken food systems

In South and Southeast Asia, the demand for chicken meat and eggs is growing rapidly. This is resulting in the intensification of chicken production and drastic transformations of the associated food systems, raising major concerns for food safety. Using a modelling approach, this project aims to assess how these changes influence the generation of foodborne disease risk, and to design risk mitigation interventions tailored to the characteristics of those emerging food systems.
