EU funds project against FMD in Turkey
A new EU-funded project against FMD has been launched
by the Turkish Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Mehmet Mehdi Eker, and
Ulrike Hauer from the EC Delegation to Turkey.
Six vaccination campaigns will be initiated for livestock over a three-year
period to commence in spring.
Turkey will attempt to achieve foot and mouth free status in the Turkish
province Thrace and to have a sufficient immunity level for the control of the
disease elsewhere in the country.
Vaccine, vaccination equipment and
necessary materials for sero-surveillance of the disease throughout the country
will be provided under the project.
The European Commission has pledged to continue to support Turkey in its
efforts to fully eradicate the disease.
