Pan African Rinderpest Campaign (PARC) Kenya project was implemented alongside Emergency Programme for the Eradication of Rinderpest in Kenya (EPERK). The components addressed under PARC (K) project were: (i) Rinderpest control and surveillance (ii) Strengthening Contagious Bovine Pleural Pneumonia Control (iii) Strengthening Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) control (iv) Establishment of privatization scheme-Kenya Veterinary Association Privatization Scheme. After an outbreak of rinderpest in wildlife in 1995, it became necessary to have an emergency operation (EPERK) with the objective of controlling the disease and eventually lead to eradication. PARC/EPERK controlled rinderpest, established private/public sector linkages, build human capacity and purchased equipment. Collaboration networks with regional bodies and neighbouring countries were established through harmonization forums. PACE (K) is modeled on the conceptual regional PACE programme strategy. The programme is intended to build on the achievement of PARC/EPERK project. The PACE (K) programme has the overall objective of contributing to rural development and poverty alleviation.
