Training Manual on Wildlife Diseases and Surveillance
Some disease control programmes focus on the target population, with vaccination or
pharmaceutical treatment of the target population as the methods of choice. If this is the case,
then it is not important to know the reservoir of the pathogen for people or even to know the
principal routes of transmission. However, when control programmes are focused on preventing
transmission of pathogens from the reservoir to the target population, or on controlling the
pathogen within the reservoir, then a very precise understanding of the reservoir of the
pathogen for the target population is required.
