Global Strategy for the Control and Eradication of PPR
21 July 2020
It is a highly contagious disease that causes USD 1.5 to 2 billion in losses each year in regions that are home to over 80% of the world’s sheep and goats and to more than 330 million of the world’s poorest people, many of whom depend on them for their livelihoods.
The Global Strategy described in this document is not a ‘stand-alone’ activity designed for PPR control and eradication only. It will allow progress to be made in other fields, with the strengthening of Veterinary Services as a cornerstone of the strategy which will provide the necessary enabling environment to control other animal diseases through a cost-effective combination of activities against several major diseases of small ruminants.
