19 American countries will meet in Colombia with the FAO, July 16-17 to accelerate and improve the control process and eradication of classical swine fever, CSF.

These countries are participating in the Continental Plan for the Eradication of Classical Swine Fever in the Americas, whose progress will be discussed in Pereira, Colombia, under the Porciaméricas Congress.
The Continental Plan seeks to eliminate this illness by 2020.

"The region is the third largest pork producer globally. The pig is a pillar of regional food security and a key economic activity for small-scale family farming and industry, "said Moises Vargas Teran, Livestock Development Officer of FAO.

As evidence of the economic impact of CSF in 1998 it was estimated that in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, annual losses due to mortality of pigs totaled $ 20 million.
