Dear Fellow-Research Scientists and Readers, Greetings on behalf of my fellow Research-Scientists and Colleagues. It gives me immense pleasure to invite you all to our web-portal of NIVEDI. The ability to detect outbreaks early is important to minimize morbidity and mortality through timely implementation of disease prevention and control measures. Early warning activities , mainly based on disease surveillance, reporting and epidemiological analysis are supported by the Geographical information system that enable integration , analysis and sharing of animal health data combined with relevant layers of information such as livestock population ,Landuse/cover, Metrological data , Remote Sensing data etc.. Delay in the detection of outbreaks and inadequate preparedness and response aggravates the impact of spread of diseases, leading to increased numbers of cases, increased duration of epidemics, excess mortality and the potential for spread to other areas nationally, regionally, or globally.National Institute of Veterinary Epidemiology and Disease Informatics (NIVEDI) is the only institute catering to the needs of surveillance and monitoring of livestock diseases and thereby caring for the country's animal health. Livestock population and disease profiles available in the databank are the cynosure of the institute.
