Preface

Author(s) : B. Vallat

Summary :

More than 50 of the 162 Member Countries of the OIE, the World Organisation for Animal Health, have obtained recognition from the OIE for freedom from foot and mouth disease (FMD) without vaccination. The virus continues to circulate in two-thirds of the remaining countries, thus dividing the globe into two zones. This has significant effects on international trade patterns in susceptible animals and animal products. Consequently, countries that do not have FMD-free status continue to suffer a severe handicap in terms of access to international markets. This situation was highlighted by the sudden and largely unexpected resurgence of FMD in Europe, South America and Asia at the beginning of the 21st Century.
