    African Swine Fever (ASF) -Don't let your pigs die from African Swine Fever 2021
    African swine fever (ASF) is a highly contagious and deadly pig disease that affect domestic and wild pigs. Although the ASF virus does not pose a hazard or risk to humans, the disease is fatal in domestic pigs and wild boars. ASF has already caused huge economic losses and considerable trade disruptions worldwide. Smallholder pig farms or backyard producers are thought to be the most at risk. This poster follows up on the ASF Animation "Be a Champion Farmer" and is part of the FAO/PIE Regional campaign to raise awareness on African Swine Fever and promote good biosecuiry practices in the farm.

    African swine fever prevention, detection and control in resource-limited settings 2023

    This booklet provides guidance on prevention, detection and control of African swine fever (ASF) in resource-limited settings. It is designed primarily for places where ASF is endemic with few or no prospects of eliminating the disease, and places at high risk of incursion. The guide is divided into five sections. The first covers key aspects of the disease that can be exploited when developing prevention and control programmes, even when resources are limited. The next three sections provide suggestions on simple, low-cost measures for ASF prevention, early warning and detection, and control that have been shown to work in these settings. The last section considers ways that communities can work together to manage ASF, as well as the role of public-private partnerships in this process. Animal health is not just the responsibility of government veterinary services or individual producers. It also involves local communities, feed suppliers, pig traders and processors, and animal health workers at community level. By working together, with the help of the knowledge contained in this guide, we can ensure that the devastation caused by ASF can be minimized, even in places where resources to prevent and control the disease are scarce.
