Diseases caused by viruses in animals, plants and humans
remain a major economic factor in many tropical countries.
Long established virus diseases such as rabies are still
extremely serious health problems. Emerging diseases such
as Lasa fever and Ebola in humans and geminiviruses in plants
represent new threats with the potential to spread worldwide.
Rinderpest long eradicated in temperate countries still
remains a problem for cattle farmers in several tropical
countries despite the availability of excellent vaccines.
This could be due to lack of enough trained manpower and
field managerial skills. The case of widespread movement
of animals, plants and humans means that security against
virus caused diseases is much more difficult to maintain.
