The Community-based Animal Health and Participatory Epidemiology (CAPE) Unit is a sub-unit of the Pan African Programme for the Control of Epizootics (PACE). The CAPE Unit was established in January 2001 and is located in the OAU/IBAR offices in Nairobi, Kenya. This workshop was organised to introduce the CAPE Unit to senior government veterinarians working with PACE and explain the linkages between CAPE and PACE. The workshop was also an opportunity to present CAPE's objectives, obtain up-to-date information on veterinary services in pastoral areas, and identify priority needs in relation to CAPE and PACE activities. The CAPE Unit focuses activities in the Greater Horn of Africa region. The workshop participants included staff from the PACE Programme in Nairobi (Coordination, Epidemiology, Economics, Privatisation and Legislation, Data Management and Communications Units), National PACE Coordinators, District Veterinary Officers, and representatives from veterinary schools, veterinary boards/councils, veterinary associations and donors.
