Introduction

Veterinaires Sans Frontieres Belgium (VSF-Belgium) is an international non-governmental organization whose vision is to improve the welfare of vulnerable populations in developing countries, through improving animal health and production.

We have been a key player in the livestock sector in Southern Sudan since 1995 with a major role in the establishment of a community based animal health delivery system. Since 2007 VSF Belgium has been involved directly in supporting the Ministry of Animal Resources and Fisheries (MARF) in the establishment of an effective and efficient disease surveillance system in South Sudan.

This is under Livestock Epidemio-surveillance Southern subproject (LESP) through a grant from the European Community (EC), a parallel project is being implemented in northern Sudan.

The overall objective of the project is long-term reduction of poverty of those involved in livestock farming.

The specific objectives are:
  • Completion of the rinderpest eradication pathway in Southern Sudan completed by 2008.
