iciHaiti - Grand'Anse : Animal vaccination campaign against ANTHRAX
Anthrax identified in Haiti since the 18th century, is a serious enzootic disease mainly affecting domestic herbivores. This endemic disease mainly affects cattle and is a scourge for Haitian breeders. It is responsible for significant economic losses and is also a public health problem, since this disease is transmissible to humans.

In order to control this disease, protect herbivores and reduce the risks for the human population the Directorate of Animal Health of the Ministry of Agriculture with the support of the Pan American Health Organization and the World Health Organization, (PAHO/WHO) organized a vaccination campaign for 150,000 herbivores, all species combined, in the department of Grand'Anse.

Let's recall that cases of animal mortality are recorded in Haiti every year. 192 cases of Anthrax were notified in 2022 on national territory, including 67 (34.8%) in the department of Grand'Anse.

This vaccination campaign is accompanied by awareness-raising activities aimed at animal owners and the general population on the dangers of ANTRAX for animals and humans. Through the distribution of communication materials, the broadcasting of advertisements on local radio stations and the direct messages of awareness-raising agents using megaphones to inform rural populations, the Ministry hopes to reach as many people as possible and thus reduce the risks. contamination.
