Résumé A regional workshop, sponsored by UN Development Program to address the problem of peste des petits ruminants (PPR) in the Middle East (Jordan and Palestine) and North African (Algeria and Egypt), (MENA) region, was held at the Jordan University of Science and Technology in February 2017. Thirty-two key scientists from universities and governments in 4 countries (Jordan, Palestine, Egypt and Algeria) gathered to present and discuss various aspects of PPR. Additionally, several farmers from the Mafraq area of Jordan participated to learn and inform. Using an interactive framework, attendees shared perspectives and gained valuable information on control of this transboundary animal disease problem. The group created a list of key issues for addressing this serious problem, including: education of farmers about clinicpathologic signs of disease for immediate reporting (passive surveillance); increasing emphasis on disease reporting (passive surveillance) as opposed to active surveillance (serologic testing); importance of sequencing isolates for variation and lineage testing; establishment of OIE reference laboratory within or close to MENA region.
