Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) can severely affect small ruminants in almost 70 countries in Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia. It is a highly contagious disease that causes USD 1.5 to 2 billion in losses each year in regions that are home to over 80% of the world’s sheep and goats and to more than 330 million of the world’s poorest people, many of whom depend on them for their livelihoods.
The Global Strategy described in this document is not a ‘stand-alone’ activity designed for PPR control and eradication only.
