Trypanosomosis remains one of the most serious Livestock and Human diseases on the African continent. Affecting over half of the countries in Africa, the disease carried by the dreaded Tsetse fly, causes immeasurable suffering and economic losses to livestock farmers and country economies in addition to threatening food security.
GALVmed with support and funding from the UK Government, embarked upon a project seeking to develop new control tools for African tryps. This has seen our activities synergising with those of the African Union PATTEC and others, in a continental approach and collaborative partnership to try to strengthen the fight against this disease which has plagued Africa for many decades.
A recent development is the signing of an MoU between the African Union and GALVmed which took place on Friday 9th November at the African Union Commission HQ in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.
