Lumpy Skin Disease – Vaccination

7 April 2015 ::: Webinar

Following the outbreaks of Lumpy Skin Disease in countries of the Middle East and the continuous westward spread of disease, FAO and EuFMD were asked to assist those countries most at risk and it was convened to organize a first online meeting focused on LSD epidemiology and possible control strategies with particular reference to effective vaccination.

The online meeting took place on the 7th April 2015 and was facilitated by Dr Eran Raizman (FAO) and Dr Kees Van Maanen (EuFMD). Participants were from Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Cyprus, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Azerbaijan, Iran, and Iraq.

Technical presentations on disease epidemiology and vaccines as well as other items for sharing experience on control strategies were presented followed by an open discussion.

The full recording of the webinar can be accessed online and it will take few minutes to connect, please wait while the screen reads “connecting”.
