dc.description.abstractBovine Tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis) is endemic in over 13% of New Zealand. Despite the concentrated efforts of government departments and regional pest boards over the last 20 years, the disease continues to spread across the country, infecting stock and frustrating all attempts at control. This study evaluates the organisational structures and policies that have been erected to control the disease in order to establish why there has been such an apparent lack of success. The analysis uses qualitative research techniques and policy analysis concepts coupled with a review of relevant technical and economic data, to derive alternative arrangements thought to provide greater benefits for the long-term control of the disease. This research indicates that there is minimal public benefit to be derived from government intervention in Tb control. In fact, there is evidence that the statutory monopolies granted MAF and the Agricultural Pest Destruction Council have nullified any incentive for an effective industry-based response to Tb control. To rectify present organisational failings, it is proposed that Government withdraw totally from animal disease control programmes and allow the programmes to be administered by those directly affected by quality of control.en
