Official disease status
Myanmar − Suspension of PPR-free status
Font size -
Myanmar was officially recognised as a peste des petits ruminants (PPR)-free country by the OIE in 2014.
In 2017, a mission was conducted in Myanmar to monitor its compliance with the Terrestrial Animal Health Code provisions for the maintenance of its PPR-free status. As a consequence, Myanmar’s PPR-free country status was suspended, with effect from 18 December 2017.
According to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the suspension of an officially recognised disease status, the country has two years to recover its previously recognised status by complying with the relevant requirements of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code.
