The European Commission has supported the continent-wide fight against rinderpest, through the Pan African Rinderpest Campaign (PARC). This project has had considerable success and the disease now appears to be restricted to two main foci. namely. southern Sudan and southern Somalia, two countries affected by chronic civil unrest and insecurity. The PARC project ended on 31 October 1999, after thirteen years of successful implementation. The European Union and the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) have developed a new programme, the Pan African Programme for the Control of Epizootics (PACE). The PACE Programme will build on the achievements of PARC to finally eradicate rinderpest and to set up a Pan African network for the control of epizootics and the necessary means to develop this tool.
