Indonesia Receives FMD Vaccine Assistance from FAO


The Indonesian government received vaccine assistance from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to tackle the foot-and-mouth disease affecting livestock throughout the country. About 10,000 doses of the FMD vaccine arrived in Indonesia on August 2, 2022. FAO representative for Indonesia and Timor Leste Rajendra Aryal said the assistance is part of the FAO-Australia-ASEAN project for animal health in Southeast Asia. "This is the first stage that arrives in Indonesia to initiate national vaccination," he said.

Rajendra revealed that the Indonesian government is teaming up with FAO to control the disease in 22 provinces. FAO also provides additional laboratory equipment for veterinary centers to increase the FMD detection capacity. The agency is also facilitating meetings with international experts. "FAO has also dispatched a team of experts on emergency missions to several provinces affected by the FMD to provide advice on short-term and long-term actions," he said.
