3.3.6 What resources are needed to set up an ORV programme?

They will generally include:

• capital equipment (e.g. aircraft, storage facilities, refrigerators, laboratory equipment, etc.)
• personnel (flight crews, hunters, governmental staff)
• disposables (e.g. for hand distribution of vaccine baits, laboratory analyses)
• vaccine [animal (modified live virus and inactivated) and human]
• funds to support local subsistence and allowances for the personnel involved (hunters)
• funds for meetings, training and community sensitisation (including development of educational material).
