Dr Chibeu Dickens, a veterinary epidemiologist from Kenya, tells the story of how one of the world’s most destructive diseases has finally been stamped out – after centuries of trying. The success was due in part to a breakthrough vaccination – and in part thanks to global collaboration. Are there lessons for animal and human health – and for other kinds of international co-operation?
