    Stratégie régionale pour le contrôle de la peste porcine africaine en Afrique 2017
    Also available in:

    L'évolution réelle de l'Afrique se caractérise par une forte intégration au niveau régional, entraînant un commerce intensif, accentué par les mouvements de personnes et la libre circulation des biens et des personnes. Dans ce contexte, seule une approche régionale peut être envisagée pour réduire le risque de pertes économiques dues à la PPA. Cette approche crée une synergie entre les pays et bénéficie de l'expérience mutuelle. En dépit de la perte due à la maladie et de nombreuses mesures pris es pour lutter contre elle, la situation demeure dramatique en termes de menace de subsistance des populations. La stratégie élaborée associée à un plan d'action permet un contrôle progressif et coordonné au niveau régional. Pour atteindre cet objectif, elle privilégie le renforcement des capacités des services techniques et l'amélioration des systèmes de production actuels, créant des conditions optimales pour la modernisation et le développement de l'industrie porcine dans un contexte sain.

    African swine fever ( is a viral disease with potentially serious implications for global trade and food safety The virus remains active for long periods of time in infected blood, faeces and tissues, and there is currently no vaccine, which makes it difficult to contain the disease and impossible to control it The disease has a major impact on countries, regions and subregions generating the following i job losses ;;( loss of export markets ;;( animal mortality ;;( resource scarcity among low income populations ;;( loss of animal protein sources and ( reduction of vulnerable families’ economic capacity In the Americas there are two modalities of pig production rural and industrial Rural production is carried out by smallholder farmers, who use low level technologies and keep small numbers of animals that transform grass, local crops and household waste into animal protein This is based mainly on domestic animal husbandry, with few animals on each farm, but spread over large geographical areas In these farms, the lack of veterinary care, health control, identification and traceability poses a major risk for the introduction of ASF In contrast, industrial pig production employs specialized technologies with large numbers of animals, veterinary assistance and a well organized slaughter and marketing chain An ASF outbreak would have a devastating impact on the livelihoods of rural inhabitants who raise pigs as a source of additional income Moreover, the costs of control measures, including the culling of infected stock and disinfection of infrastructure and fomites, will diminish resilience in the affected areas After an absence of more than 40 years from Latin America and the Caribbean, the fact that ASF has appeared in the region demonstrates the need for a project to provide tools and tasks to the Official Veterinary Services ( In collaboration with the World Organization for Animal Health ( FAO has created the Standing Group of Experts of the Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF TADs) for the Americas.
