Abstract
The key objective for the second year of the Tick-borne Diseases Project was to conduct field trials to test the efficacy of the ECFiM system of immunisation against East Coast fever (ECF ) in the Coast and Central Provinces of Kenya. This objective was achieved. Results in Coast Province were excellent and the Director of Veterinary Services (DVS) gave his approval for the ECFiM system to be offered to cattle owners by private veterinary practitioners around Mombasa. Trials in Central Province, adjacent to the National Veterinary Research Centre (NVRC), Muguga, are giving encouraging results and the approval of the DVS to implement the ECFiM system in this area will be sought in the near future. Further pilot field trials have been established throughout the areas of Kenya affected by ECF.
