INCREASING GLOBAL SECURITY IN THE SUPPLY OF EFFECTIVE FMD VACCINES
Can we really manage the risks and achieve progressive FMD control without it?
Behind almost all of our problems with Foot-and-Mouth Disease are four things: the frequency of emergence of new strains, the exceptional virus infectivity and speed of spread, the impact on producers and the lack of security that comes from the limited and uncertain access to suitable vaccines.
Behind almost all our FMD mitigation nightmares is one simple fact : we do not have vaccine security.
