The European Commission has sent a consignment of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) vaccine to Zambia in order to help the African nation's efforts in fighting an outbreak of the disease in the northern part of the country. The consignment consists of 80,000 doses of FMD vaccine.

The Commission's decision comes in response to a Zambian request, which was submitted through the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), to provide support for an emergency vaccination campaign against the new FMD virus. The vaccination campaign will be monitored by the FAO Regional Animal Heal Centres. The Commission will continue to assist Zambia in its efforts to eradicate this disease as it may also pose a threat to the European Union and its trade partners in southern Africa
