    Global Rinderpest Action Plan
    Post-eradication
    2018
    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) declared in 2011 the global eradication of rinderpest and resolved to implement follow-up measures to maintain world freedom from the disease. Rinderpest is the only animal disease that has been globally eradicated. The greatest risk for rinderpest (RP) re-emergence is the release, whether intentional or unintentional, of infectious material from a Rinderpest Holding Facility (RHF) among susceptible animal populations. The re-emergence of disease would be a global animal health emergency, leading to the loss of global disease freedom and threatening livelihoods, food security, international trade and national economies. The Global Rinderpest Action Plan (GRAP) aims to ensure continued global freedom from rinderpest by outlining the actions necessary to prepare for, respond to and recover from a RP outbreak.

    This fact sheet describes the course that addresses the need for preparedness in order to maintain freedom from rinderpest in the post-eradication era. It illustrates a stepwise approach to preparing and preventing the reintroduction of rinderpest, investigating and reporting a suspected case, and responding to and recovering from rinderpest re-emergence, if it occurs. These stages are described in the framework of the Global Rinderpest Action Plan - Post-eradication (GRAP) for adoption and implementation at national, regional and international levels. The GRAP framework can also be applied to other transboundary animal diseases and zoonoses.

    Maintaining Global Freedom from Rinderpest - GCP/GLO/891/USA 2023

    The world has been free of rinderpest, a highly contagious bovine illness, since 2011, when it was eradicated. Prior to the implementation of this project, an initial Phase I project successfully supported twelve countries in destroying or transferring their rinderpest virus stocks to rinderpest holding facilities (RHFs), among other things. The aim of this Phase II project was to continue to maintain global freedom from rinderpest by: (1) strengthening awareness of clinical signs and impacts of rinderpest re-emergence; (2) coordinating the destruction and consolidation of remaining rinderpest virus containing material (RVCM) into secure RHFs; (3) encouraging unapproved laboratories to destroy and consolidate RVCM stocks in targeted countries; and (4) developing and implementing the Global Rinderpest Action Plan (GRAP). The project was carried out by FAO and the World Organisationfor Animal Health (WOAH) Rinderpest Co-secretariat and their Joint Advisory Committee (JAC).
