Foot-and-mouth disease – SA

OIE – Foot and mouth disease Disease Information Summary

South Africa has an officially recognised OIE Free Zone for foot-and-mouth disease (FMD)

South Africa has to reapply annually for reconfirmation of our free status, and one of the requirements is conducting annual awareness campaigns.

It is important that South Africa remains aware of the clinical signs associated with the disease so it can be recognised and reported should it enter the Free Zone.
