Economic impact of two outbreaks of east Coast fever (ECF) was assessed in two cattle camps in Juba district, central equatorial state, south Sudan. The overall losses were estimated at both camps to amount to US$ 134 325. Mortality due to ECF represented major cause of economic losses (81.5%), while loss of milk production and costs of control were relatively low. The magnitude of economic losses due to ECF on cattle and resources and its impact on livelihood were discussed.
