This paper reviews initial experiences with the introduction of these alternatives policies in the four main reform categories (ie cost recovery for services rendered, institutional changes, liberalization of drug supplies and privatization of clinical veterinary interventions). The paper concludes that, while all reforms have not been met with the same level of entusiasm, the greatly changed attitude of Africa's heads of veterinary services, who now fully recognize the need to identify alternatives and be innovative in the search for more sustainable systems, is probably the most encouraging result of the ongoing policy dialogue, some augurs well for the future.
