Preparation of Foot-and-Mouth Disease Contingency Plans

William A. Geering, Juan Lubroth, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Staff.
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious viral disease which is one of the most serious transboundary animal diseases. Although not a very lethal disease for adult animals, it can cause crippling socio-economic consequences, through high production and trade losses. This manual provides information on the nature of FMD, and on the options for its prevention, control and elimination. Guidelines are provided for individual countries threatened by FMD to formulate their overall national policy on control and eradication of a possible incursion of the disease.
