Equine Disease Communication Center

The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) is an industry-driven initiative which works to protect horses and the horse industry from the threat of infectious diseases in North America. The communication system is designed to seek and report real time information about diseases similar to how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerts the human population about diseases in people.
