dc.description.abstract A 15-year record of the results of horse sera from the Khomas region of Namibia tested by the complement fixation test for dourine at the Central Veterinary Laboratory in Windhoek before clearing the respective animals for export and competitive sport were subjected to statistical analysis. The range of percentage positive, taken as the apparent prevalence of dourine for the region, during the period of study, was 0-29.09%; the average regional level of apparent prevalence was 8.33%. These figures were thought to be lower than the real situation due to some bias in the sampling criteria. For more accurate results, the more reliable enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay techniques are recommended for use in sero-surveys for dourine in Khomas and other regions of Namibia to provide a basis for development of effective control strategies against the disease. en
