FMD global strategy to improve living conditions

A new global strategy is to benefit farmers and consumers. The plan, which has been endorsed representatives from more than 100 countries and international donors at a 3-day conference on foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in Bangkok, will  help control the spread of a deadly livestock disease.
The Strategy is expected to achieve three main goals;  FMD to be controlled in most countries and eliminated in some of them; Veterinary services and their infrastructures to be improved; some other major diseases of livestock to be further prevented and controlled
In words of World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Director-General, Bernard Vallat, "[f]oot-and-mouth disease is not a priority in many countries, but when it strikes, the damage is enormous, ranging from losses in production to the culling of animals and trade bans. Good governance of national veterinary services using the OIE PVS Pathway is a critical element of mitigating foot-and-mouth disease with a positive impact on food security and poverty”.
