    Control of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia – A policy for coordinated actions 2019
    Also available in:

    Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is an insidious disease that lingers in herds, causing significant morbidity and mortality. The policies to address the control and management of CBPP are in disarray at both the national and international levels. There has not been significant improvement in the efficacies of available vaccines or diagnostic assays for several decades. Classic strategies of mass vaccination and strict movement control that once were perceived as successful in rolling back the disease have largely fallen due to high costs, concerns of declining impact and growing public resistance. Officially, treatment with antibiotics is discouraged or prohibited, yet their use is widespread. CBPP is by all means an enigmatic disease, whose control probably requires a new paradigm or out-of-the-box thinking and executing approach. The purpose of this document is to provide an evidence-based policy for the implementation of sound control of CBPP by all stakeholders at all levels – global, regional and national. It describes a road map to CBPP control that is cognizant of the situation on the ground. While not being prescriptive, the document includes examples of combinations of interventions and control measures that should offer the opportunity to improve impact and hence offer better livelihoods to livestock producers.

    Recognizing contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (Revised Edition) 2002
    Also available in:

    Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is a well known scourge of cattle in Africa and elsewhere. On entering previously uninfected cattle populations, it often causes an explosive epidemic with high mortality. In endemic situations, the disease is known for its insidious spread and debilitating effects on cattle production. The difficulties experienced in diagnosing and combating the disease pose a serious challenge to all stakeholders. The fact that CBPP is still a major problem in Africa ha s prompted FAO to revise the previous edition of this booklet with larger pictures of clinical signs and gross pathological changes of CBPP, as a means of assisting those dealing with the disease to recognize it, make a proper diagnosis and take the appropriate action to curtail its spread.

    CBPP Round Table: Can CBPP be eradicated? 2016

    Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is one of the most important infectious diseases of cattle in Africa with serious implications on food security and livelihoods. The Fifth consultative meeting was organized to address the dynamics of CBPP with a view to lay out the technical and policy approaches for sustainable progressive control and ultimately eradication of the disease. The report of the meeting will gather the outcome of the deliberations of the experts and main rec ommendations and conclusions of the meeting. The knowledge and scientific information that will be disseminated through this publication contribute to capacity development and resilience building for the wellbeing of the vulnerable populations in countries affected by CBPP. The scope of work in the proposed report falls under the Major Area of Work FCC/EMPRES of the FAO’s Strategic Objective 5 “Increase the Resilience of Livelihoods to Threats and Crises” with signif icant contribution to the Organizational outcomes 3 and 4 under this objective.
