    The efficient control of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) by immunisation depends not only on the appropriate choice of vaccine in terms of innocuity, potency and strain composition, but also on a series of inter-related zoo-sanitary factors which are equally important.

    These include :

    • national, centralised planning (including contingency planning) and control ;

    • vaccination and revaccination policy ;

    • the availability of epizootiological intelligence based on adequate diagnostic capability and ongoing immunological surveillance : the logistics of supply with its components of storage, transport and distribution : proper vaccine application : cleaning and disinfection of premises, vehicles and personnel ;

    • identification of individual animals ;

    • control of animal movement ;

    • recording : ongoing economic outcome and benefit analyses ;

    • training and retraining of professional and technical staff ;

    • public relations and especially the commitment of the agricultural community.

    These elements are reviewed in this paper.
