BAI Beekeeping Development Program
|Honeybee industry has been recognized as a progressive part of the Philippine agriculture. Aside from being excellent pollinators, honeybees have provided the consuming public of honey, propolis, bees wax and other food products. To ensure the quality and safety of such products for human consumption, this Bureau is mandated to develop and enforce food safety standards and regulations pursuant to Food Safety Act of 2013 and Department of Agriculture Administrative Order No. 14, series of 2012 entitled “Promoting the Development of Apiculture or Honeybee Industry Including Its Official Controls and Regulatory Requirement Under the Bureau of Animal Industry”.|
|The BAI Beekeeping Program was created to lead in the promotion of the development of apiculture, support in the development of the Apiculture roadmap, and formulate appropriate controls and quarantine measures based on OIE standards and other International setting bodies.|
|1. Promote the development of apiculture in coordination with NARTDI and other beekeepers and stakeholders;|
|2. Support the development of Apiculture Roadmap and integrate its annual work and financial plan under the National Livestock Program;|
|3. Formulate appropriate official controls and quarantine measures based on OIE standards and other International setting bodies.|
Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP) Surveillance
|Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP), also known as Lung Sickness (Amanfu, 2009), is caused by the bacterium Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides. It is a pneumonic disease of cattle and Water Buffalo that causes high morbidity and mortality and has significant trade and economic implications. The disease is included in the 2019 list of notifiable diseases of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).|
|Currently, there are only 16 CBPP-free countries out of the 182 member countries of the OIE, including China, Singapore and Australia which are near the Philippines. CBPP is presently widespread and significantly restricts cattle raising and trade in Africa (Domenech and Windsor, 1996; Spickler, 2015).|
|There are also reported sporadic outbreaks of the disease in the Middle East (Spickler, 2015). According to the Philippine Statistics Authority, there are 2.54 million heads of cattle and 2.87 million heads of Water Buffalo as of January 1, 2019 that may be susceptible to the disease. An outbreak of the disease has severe implication to the local ruminant industry. A study on the economic effect of CBPP in Africa conducted by Tambi, Maina and Ndi (2006) estimates the total losses over 8 years to be at 53.4 Million Dollars.|
|Historically, neither reports nor diagnosis of CBPP were made in the country. Surveillance, reports and studies also have not been conducted on the presence and prevalence of CBPP in the country. Thus, as part of the Government’s initiative to apply for CBPP freedom to the OIE, this study was conceptualized and is considered as the first prevalence study of the disease in the country.|
|The study aims to conduct a surveillance of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP) in Cattle and Water Buffalo in the Philippines through seroprevalence using Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) Test|
|1. Determine the seroprevalence of CBPP in the Philippines|
|2. Develop a prevention and control plan for CBPP outbreak in the Philippines 3. Apply to OIE for CBPP disease freedom status of the Philippines|
