Animal Disease Outbreak - Learning Journey

This learning journey explores the current theory surrounding the transference of 'mad cow disease' into the human population as vCJD (variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease).

It is accompanied by a learner challenge that focuses on the initial government response to an outbreak of foot and mouth disease, and a fact sheet about Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) or 'mad cow disease'.
