Management Notes for this Location:
Of the Sub- Saharan countries with endemic FMDV most use vaccination as a major control measure and many employ surveillance and movement controls within the country as well. Only a few of the sub-Saharan African countries are able to control movement across national borders. Several countries in the southern part of Africa (Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe) have zones within the country where tighter controls are in place. These zones are usually free of FMDV with only occasional sporadic outbreaks occurring. However, in all of Africa, only Botswana and Namibia have zones that are recognized by the OIE as free of FMDV (FIWG, 2003).
