Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) Control Programme (PPR-CP)
Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) is a viral disease of sheep and goats (goat plague) characterized by high fever, inflammation of the gastro-intestinal tract leading to necrosis and ulceration of the mucous membrane and diarrhoea. PPR infection causes huge losses in the rural economy, both in terms of morbidity and mortality in sheep and goats. PPR Control Programme involving intensive vaccination of susceptible animals was started in 2010. The Department initiated National Control Programme with the ultimate objective to fully control this disease from the country in a time-bound manner in the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Goa and UTs of Lakshadweep, Daman & Diu, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Puducherry. This programme is now renamed as PPR Control Programme and is being implemented in all the States and UT’s from 2014-15. The programme involves vaccination of all susceptible goats & sheep and their three subsequent generations (approx 30% sheep and goat population).
It is being implemented on 60:40 sharing basis between Centre and State except in North Eastern and 3 Himalayan States (Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand) where the funding pattern is on 90:10 Centre: State sharing basis, whereas 100% central share is being provided for Union Territories. Research institutions are also assisted for surveillance and monitoring under PPR-CP.
