These guidelines are intended to help countries in the development and implementation of PPR eradication programmes, including objectives, policies and strategies that can be adapted to the full range of national needs, and that facilitate the integration of the wildlife sector into the national strategic plan. Integration will enhance the conservation of wildlife populations, and facilitate management of diseases at the wildlife–livestock interface. Establishing a multisectoral coordination mechanism is essential to ensure good governance and effective collaboration in achieving PPR eradication goals.
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a conceptual framework that can be tailored to a particular national and epidemiological context. In addition, they can be adapted for any disease at the wildlife–human–livestock interface.
