How can epidemiological monitoring and modelling contribute to management decisions? Lessons learned from ten years of brucellosis in French wildlife

Abstract

Epidemiological monitoring and modelling are tools to inform management decisions. However, whether research actually feeds field actions depends on how actors from both fields interact. We propose a feedback on the outbreak of brucellosis due to Brucella melitensis detected in 2012 in the French Alps in humans, cattle and ibex. Based on changes in the category of papers published, we identified three phases in epidemiological knowledge: descriptive epidemiology was performed in 2012-2014, analytical studies in 2015-2020, and evaluative epidemiology emerged since 2021. Management phases followed knowledge with a one-year lag. However, changes in management decisions were not primarily related to changes in knowledge, but to the societal reaction to management and to the discovery of a new infected herd. Having identified the factors promoting or limiting the interaction between science and management, we propose several ways for improving the scientific approach and its use in health management.
