Pan African Programme for the Control of Epizootics (PACE): 2000-2007


The Pan African-Programme for the Control of Epizootics (PACE) aimed at strengthening and establishing sustainable animal disease surveillance in sub-Saharan Africa. The programme, covered 32 sub-Saharan countries and was coordinated through the African Union/Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU/IBAR). This project had considerable success and the disease appeared to be restricted to two main regions, namely, southern Sudan and the southern Somali ecosystems, two areas affected by chronic conflict and war. EC and AU had developed a new programme PACE, to build on the achievements of PARC.
