Results Strengths : Well implemented control program for FMD, CBPP with establishment and maintenance of free, surveillance and buffer zones A national rabies control program with vaccination campaigns is well managed There is also a good Trypanosomiasis eradication between Angola, Botswana, Namibia and Zambia with DVS involvement

Weaknesses : There are several other diseases of importance which are not controlled, particularly north of the VCF, such as lumpy skin disease, anthrax, rabies and CBPP Supporting documentation (documents or photos): Directorate of Veterinary Services Annual Report 2005 Directorate of Veterinary Services Annual Report 2006 Disease free status recognition by OIE Detailed findings during visit: Disease control: We learned that the diseases of highest economic importance in Namibia are: FMD, CBPP, Anthrax, blackleg, botulism, rabies, lumpy skin disease, malignant catarrhal fever, pasteurellosis, occasionally blue tongue, Newcastle disease, and salmonella for trade purposes. Active or passive surveillance programs exist for all of these diseases, but not all of them have effective control programs implemented.
