    Strengthening Regional Coordination and Collaboration for the Prevention and Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases with Focus on FMD And PPR and Emerging TADs in the Nena Region - TCP/RAB/3704 2022
    Also available in:

    Livestock is important in supporting livelihoods in the Near East and North Africa ( region Diseases affecting livestock have a devastating impact on animal productivity and production, as well as on human health and, consequently, on the overall process of economic development Foot and mouth disease ( Peste des petits ruminants ( and Middle East respiratory syndrome Coronavirus (MERS CoV are among the diseases present in the NENA region In addition, globalization and climate change represent risk factors that contribute to the increase in emerging and re emerging animal and zoonotic diseases Transboundary animal diseases ( are a common concern among NENA countries, as they threaten local food production and country economies While capacity building programmes ( surveillance, and control) for veterinary services on the prevention and control of TADs have been implemented in the region, these have not translated to a higher number of coordinated action across countries This is due to the lack of timely information on various diseases, their movement across borders, and their potential impacts at the regional level The lack of information limits decision making and does not allow for early action.

    Avian influenza vaccine supply chain in Quang Ninh province, Vietnam, 2021 2023

    No results found.

    Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is a zoonotic disease that can affect both poultry and humans. Since 2005, the Vietnam government has implemented a national vaccination campaign to prevent the spread of avian influenza (AI). In 2021, the first outbreak of HPAI H5N8 was reported in a chicken farm in Quang Ninh province. To gain a comprehensive understanding of the chain and its relevance to HPAI vaccination in various aspects, and to identify and comprehend the stakeholders involved in the AI campaign and their roles within the vaccine supply chain. A cross-sectional study was conducted from Nov-2021 to Jan- 2022. We purposively selected 114 participants, including 71 poultry farmers using HPAI vaccines, 16 veterinary drug store owners, 18 commune animal health workers (CAHWs), 8 staff from the Centers for Agricultural Services (ATSCs), and one vaccine distributor who were interviewed face-to-face using a structured questionnaire. Three HPAI vaccines (H5N1 clade 1 & 2.3.2.1, H5N1 clade 2.3.4, and H5N1 clade 2.3.2.1b) were used. Distributors stored vaccines at the required temperature and transported them in appropriate vehicles. Vaccines remained in the supply chain for 3–5 months within their 12-month shelf-life period. The free government vaccination campaign, implemented by CAHWs, and administered by the ATSCs, reached 61% of small-scale poultry farms with a 1.19% vaccine wastage rate. Large-scale poultry farms followed the national campaign but paid a fee for the vaccines. We recommend expanding the support for AI vaccination to increase the vaccination rate among large-scale poultry farms, selecting higher efficacy seed vaccines, and that smaller dose vaccine vials are available for cost-effective vaccination.

    Real-time monitoring and forecasting of Rift Valley fever in Africa 2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a vector-borne disease that severely impacts livelihoods, national and international markets, and human health. RVF is currently limited to Africa and parts of the Near East but has the recognized potential to expand globally. The disease in livestock is spread primarily by mosquitoes and the movement of animals. Clinical disease has been observed in sheep, goats, cattle, buffaloes, camels and humans. RVF is zoonotic. It can result in widespread febrile illness in humans, associated with severe and sometimes fatal sequelae in under one percent of cases. Outbreaks of RVF are closely associated with climate anomalies such as periods of heavy rains and prolonged flooding, which increase habitat suitability for vector populations, thus influencing the risk of disease emergence, transmission and spread. In this context, Early Warning Systems represent an essential tool providing information on occurring animal health hazards that might evolve into disasters unless early response is undertaken. To enable national authorities to implement measures preventing outbreaks, FAO developed the RVF Monitoring/Early Warning System. This tool has been crucial to successfully forecast hotspots for RVF vector amplification, providing recommendations and early warning messages for countries at risk of RVF outbreaks.
