ICAR - National Institute Of Veterinary Epidemiology and Disease Informatics
Post Box no: 6450, Yelahanka, Bengaluru, 560064
National Institute Of Veterinary Epidemiology And Disease Informatics, formerly known as Project Directorate of Animal Disease Monitoring and Surevillance (PD_ADMAS), has a long successful history of delivering predicted informatics and solutions for various animal diseases. The institue has been setup under the regulations of Indian Counsil of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), a Central Government organization under the Department of Research and Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, set up an All India Research Project on Animal Disease Monitoring and Surveillance, (AICRP on ADMAS)aiming towards providing the country with comprehensive animal health information, prevalence of diseases in temporal and spatial relation and forecasting and forewarning of the animal diseases,

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.
Establishment of early warning surveillance systems, preparing for, investigating and responding to priority diseases is very
much critical in reducing morbidity and mortality in vulnerable populations, keeping in view of protection of global health security. 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. Different units of PD_ADMAS are working towards designing of various forecasting and forewarning modules in order to predict the livestock disease outbreaks. Spatial epidemiology, temporal epidemiology, local and global epidemiology, molecular epidemiology of various livestock diseases are routinely studied which are of utmost importance in formulating the disease control strategies. The institute has also developed spreadsheet modules for economic impact analyses of various diseases causing abortions in livestock.
NIVEDI has the credit of developing the web application, NADRES which will forecast the probability of the occurrence of a diseases in a particular district, two months in advance. The new sets of database were developed and maintained which
include livestock disease profile, demography, livestock population profile, agro-ecological profile and meteorological profile.
This knowledge is useful for the farmers, veterinarians and policy makers to control the disease.
