The PACE programme is a major development programme in the field of animal health covering 30 African countries. It was originally planned to cover 32 countries but, because of their economic and political situation, Sierra Leone and Liberia did not continue in the programme. The structure of the PACE Programme includes national operations planned and implemented in each country and regionally co-ordinated under the auspices of the Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources of the African Union (AU-IBAR). The PACE Programme includes a Programme Co-ordination Unit (PCU) in Nairobi and a Regional Coordination Unit in Bamako for West and Central Africa.
