Abstract The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), is implementing the Epidemiology and Control of Peste des petits ruminants (ECO-PPR) research project to support ongoing global PPR control and eradication efforts spearheaded by the PPR Secretariat of the FAO and OIE. The project focuses on existing research gaps and aims to provide research support to ongoing PPR control and eradication efforts in East and West Africa. The project will generate evidence to support surveillance and control actions in selected countries with emphasis on high risk areas that are difficult to reach with vaccination campaigns and may become pockets of infection. Outputs include: • Generate evidence on disease epidemiology, social networks and gendered disease impact. • Develop frameworks to assess disease risk and feasibility of eradication under different control scenarios in remote high-risk areas. • Validate and test vaccines and gender sensitive vaccine delivery models for specific epidemiological and geographical situations. • Improve surveillance capacity and coordination at national and regional levels

Project title ECo-PPR baseline activities
Project abstract The baseline activities include intra-household survey, flock examination, and markey survey. Intrahousehold survey: The tool aims to collect data on sheep and goat husbandry, flock movements, reproduction, diseases, disease prevention, impact of disease, formal and informal trade, and responsibilities and decision-making. Intra-household data will be used to understand differences in disease identification, disease prevention, and responsibilities and decision-making for small ruminants between men and women. Flock examination: The aim of the flock examination is to complement the household interview with data on the flock size and composition (species, age) and to see if there are currently any disease problems in the flock. Market survey: This research tool aims to collect data on small ruminant trading practices and market networks. There are three parts to this tool: A. Key informant interview with the market manager or other key person who is knowledgeable about the market, focusing on the general characteristics of the market. B. Market observations made by the research team of the number and type of small ruminants in the market, and any sick animals seen during the course of the market visit. C. Questionnaire by face-to-face interview with individual people who are buying and/or selling animals in the market, about the sources and destinations of the animals, the reasons for buying and/or selling, transport method, trading patterns and disease problems.
