East Coast fever (ECF) • Single biggest killer of cattle in Africa • >25 million cattle at risk, kills more than 1 million cattle yearly • Carried by ticks • 40-50% mortality in cattle • Survivors are robustly protected
How good is the vaccine? • Highly effective: life time immunity after one injection • Based on old, rather crude technology • Infection & treat • Expensive to administer (vaccine + concurrent treatment: $6-10) but price is not a fundamental constraint • Difficult to manage cold chain (liquid nitrogen) • Great basis for building a private sector veterinary service • Veterinarian required for administration • Technical expertise is required • Farmers recognise the value of the vaccine
