Newcastle disease is caused by a number of strains of virus that belong to the Rubulavirus genus of the family Paramyxoviridae and virulence of the disease depends on the particular strain of the virus.
Newcastle Disease is by no means the only disease to affect backyard poultry but it is certainly the most important disease in many areas and, until Newcastle Disease is controlled, farmers are reluctant (and it is generally not cost-effective) to control other poultry diseases.
The potential benefits of controlling Newcastle Disease with respect to household security and poverty alleviation is demonstrated by the current efforts by the scientific community to understand the impact of this disease on village poultry,and the research and trials to provide a suitable vaccine for use in rural areas.

Newcastle disease derives its name from an outbreak near Newcastle upon Tyne, England, in 1927, which is the first recorded instance of the disease (see References: Alexander 1992).
Morbidity and mortality depend on the virulence of the virus strain, the degree of immunity from previous vaccinations, environmental conditions, and the condition of the flock.
Regardless of the initial treatment, however, vaccinations must be continued throughout the life of the bird to maintain efficacy (see References: OIE: Newcastle disease: Manual of standards for diagnostic tests and vaccines).
