An historical account of tick and tick-borne disease control in East Africa with emphasis on tick-borne diseases. Implications for centres in West Africa



An historical account of tick and tick-borne disease control in East Africa with emphasis on tick-borne diseases. Implications for centres in West Africa



FAO Seminar on African Centres for Tick and Tick Borne Disease Control Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, 26-29 November 1984: recd 1986; 11



The history of ticks and tick-borne diseases of cattle in East Africa is reviewed. In West and Central Africa, there has been no introduction of European cattle, and because endemically stable tick-borne disease situations were the rule there, tick-associated problems were relatively minor. Some tick-borne disease problems are to be expected for local cattle in situations without a good endemic stability, or associated with local cattle movements.
