Final Evaluation of “Progressive Control of Peste des Petits Ruminants in Pakistan” GCP/PAK/127/USA


Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) is an animal disease which has become endemic in Pakistan since its first appearance in 1991. It spreads easily among herds and across borders and is often fatal for the sheep and goats it affects. With almost 100 million small ruminants, Pakistan’s livestock sector is highly vulnerable, with poorer households being disproportionately affected. In 2013 the Government of Pakistan and FAO set up a PPR control project, building on previous experiences in disease control. This has shed light on the extent of the problem and made the initial steps towards control. Surveillance of outbreaks has improved and vaccine production was boosted, while vaccination and information campaigns have increased awareness. How was this achieved, and what should be done next? This evaluation speaks to farmers, veterinarians and key players to assesses progress, identify success factors and shortfalls, and provide recommendations for further control of this disease.
