About this Publication:

Outbreaks of Newcastle Disease and Fowl Pox have a tremendous impact on indigenous scavenging chickens in developing countries where these birds are a significant source of protein and income. The diseases are preventable by locally available vaccines. However, a barrier exists for the application of Fowl Pox vaccine by wing-web stab, as this is considered as invasive veterinary practice and therefore limited to veterinarians or paraprofessionals under veterinary supervision. Community animal health workers in many developing countries are not legally allowed to administer parenteral products.
