Nepal, 1966. In a Kathmandu laboratory equipped by OXFAM, the Nepalese Government has started to produce its own rinderpest vaccine. Rinderpest, a deadly cattle disease, is on the decline in Asia and the Far East following intensive vaccination campaigns. Only in Afghanistan, India, Laos and Vietnam are still significantly affected by this disease, which until a few years ago was still wiping out millions of cattle yearly. In Nepal an FFHC project has been under way for two years in an effort to create an immune belt along the Indian border.
