The New World Screwworm Eradication Programme. North Africa 1988-1992

Food and Agriculture Organization,  FAO,  1992.

This book documents a programme which was unusual in several respects. The campaign to eradicate the New World screwworm from North Africa was unusually large in financial terms. At the same time it was unusually short. Era dica tion itself took about six months, although it was preceded by one year of preparation and followed by one year of continued surveillance and preventive actions. It involved an unusually large array of partners: 22 donors, eight countries at immediate risk, four UN agencies and several con­tractors from the private sector. What have been the main factors contributing to the success of the pro­gramme?
