Animal disease outbreaks generate a range of economic and non-economic impacts.
While a significant number of research studies have estimated the effects of various
diseases in a variety of contexts, examining the differential impacts and implications
associated with the introduction of a novel disease into a developing country, as
opposed to a developed one, is a rich area for further research. In this paper, the
authors highlight some of the key dimensions and implications associated with the
impacts of new diseases, how they differ in different contexts, and their implications
for public policy
