A safe DIVA vaccine for African Swine Fever control and eradication

Project description

A new vaccine for African swine fever

African swine fever (ASF) is a devastating infectious disease in pigs – usually deadly. No vaccine exists to combat this virus. The European Union has laid down prevention and control measures to be applied where African swine fever is suspected or confirmed, either in holdings or in wild boars. The EU-funded VACDIVA project will provide three safe and effective pilot vaccines for wild boar and domestic pigs that is ready for registration. It will also validate tests and develop cost-benefit and -effective surveillance and control-vaccination strategies. Field trials will be conducted in Kenya and Lithuania. Epidemiological modelling of worldwide scenarios will be offered in a portfolio of services to help animal health authorities control and eradicate the disease.
