The European Commission supported the continent-wide fight against rinderpest, through the Pan African Rinderpest Campaign (PARC), which ended on 31 March 1999, after thirteen years of successful implementation. Ghana participated in the PARC from June1992 and by September 1997, Ghana declared provisional freedom from rinderpest. Implementation of PARC Ghana ended in March 1999. The final report on PARC Ghana was submitted to the Delegation of the European Commission in Ghana at the end of 1999. The European Union and the Organization 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. A Memorandum of Understanding, between the Regional Authorizing Officer of the European Development Fund (EDF) for the PACE Programme and the National Authorizing Officer of the EDF in Ghana, is to be signed on 16 October 2000 for the sum of Euro 996 890. This indicative sum will be used to fund Ghana's activities under its National PACE Programme, which is described in the Global Plan. The PACE Advisory Committee considered Ghana's Global Plan at its second meeting in July 2000. Through the PACE Programme, the OAU/IBAR will offer a range of common technical services to the national PACE programmes.
