The write shop was held in Naivasha, Kenya from 04th to 07th April 2018.

In 2017, 21 countries and two Regional Economic Communities (RECs) were supported technically and financially to develop and validate their national PPR strategies and 5 year action plans that were aligned to the global PPR-Global Control and Eradication Strategy (PPR-GCES) and the Pan African Strategy for the Control and Eradication of Peste des Petits Ruminants.

In order to ensure a coordinated and harmonized approach to the control and eradication of PPR in Africa, the objective of the write-shop was to provide support to the remaining 24 African countries to develop and validate their National PPR control and Eradication Strategies and 5 year action plans.
