The PACE strategy provides a framework within which national programmes will be developed and linked to sub-regional and regional strategies for the surveillance and control of the major epizootic diseases. The activities of national components will vary according to the individual situations in each countly but they will always be included in the Prog=zues four thrusts with 17-04 co—non - Building up the institutional capacity of national animal health systems. - Encouraging national capacities for planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of interventions. The PACE Programme's thrusts are common to the 32 countries and are the basis for all actions. Within and across the regional groups of countries there are common themes and national PACE programmes will address national priorities within the regional requirements identified by PACE. This first volume (Volume 1) presents the consolidated work programme and cost estimate for ten national PACE programmes, namely: Burundi, Congo, Cote D'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Guinea, Kenya, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania and The Gambia. The specific objectives of the programmes are: • To stengthen national and regional capabilities to assess the technical and economic aspects of animal diseases, and to generate appropriate programmes for their control; • To safeguard animal health in Africa against major epizootic diseases. There are four expected results: • In each participating country animal epidemiology services (information, diagnostics and follow-up) and services for the control of major diseases will be reinforced; • Greater privatisation of veterinary services and public/private-sector linkage in the field; • Rinderpest will be eradicated from Africa and there will be greater control of other epizootics, in particular contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP); • A sustainable system will be set up at Pan-African level to coordinate animal health systems and the fight against epizootic diseases. The national PACE programmes which will be implemented in 32 countries, have four thrusts; that accord with the four expected results indicated above. These national programmes will, in addition, address national priorities within the regional requirements identified by PACE. The activities planned by the eleven countries in the current consolidated work plans are outlined below as they related to each thrust. The PACE strategy provides a framework within which national programmes will be developed and linked to sub-regional and regional strategies for the surveillance and control of the major epizootic diseases.
