The Pan African Programme for the Control of Epizootics (PACE) Project is currently implemented in 32 African countries with a budget allocated from member countries and a grant from the European Union. The PACE programme will assist in removing the major constraints on the development of the livestockfarming sector by creating an appropriate health security framework. It will thus help to improve farmer's incomes and people's general living conditions. It is to be recalled that Member States of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), during the ministerial conference held in August 1997, gave a mandate to the InterAfrican Bureau of Animal Resources (IBAR) to harmonise the relevant policies, to ensure a continuous and sustainable supply of veterinary services, particularly through a partnership between the private and public sector, to co-ordinate and step up control of epizootics, and to improve epidemio-surveillance, including that of wildlife. The idea behind the PACE programme is to build on PARC's achievements in order to establish low-cost national and continental epidemiological surveillance networks for the main diseases and develop the capacity needed to organise economically and technically justified disease control programmes and develop an effective and sustainable distribution of veterinary products and services by promoting private veterinary practice.
