Success will depend on implementing well drafted policies on protecting the animals through proper vaccination and ultimately eliminating FMD disease; thus, allowing improved trade, economic viability and food security.

 

The “New Livestock Revolution” relies heavily on a supportive regulatory framework, policies and services that are needed to prevent animal disease outbreaks including:

 

  • FMD vaccine production facility in accordance with European GMP standards
  • Strict health and hygiene control plan
  • Product quality control (QC & QA programs)
  • Proper veterinary services
  • Major public awareness campaign
  • Enforced laws and policies
