Psychological and socio-economical researches associated with animal health in Japan

The foot-and-mouth disease outbreak occurred in Miyazaki, Japan affected not only livestock industry but also the other local industries including tourism and restaurants, and the total economic loss has been estimated to be 2.4 billion USD. The damage was not limited on economy and it had huge impacts on the mental health of farmers, veterinarians and local civilians.

The Veterinary Epidemiology Unit is conducting collaborative researches with psychiatry experts at National Center for Psychiatry and Neurological Research, United Nations University and Miyazaki Prefecture Center for Mental Health and Welfare, and veterinarians at Miyazaki Agriculture Mutual Relief Association using veterinary and agricultural knowledge, and providing careful advice on interventions.

The unit started research on knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) associated with animal hygiene in farms in 2013. The KAP in farm plays an important role in controlling animal infectious diseases. Analyzing factors associated with KAP of animal hygiene at the farm level may raise awareness of animal hygiene among farmers more effectively.
