Decision makers from veterinary sector discussed the challenges and opportunities for effective delivery of livestock health products and services in Africa and developed actions to improve delivery. The event, hosted by GALVmed, was attended by 31 participants during the 12 and 13 June in Nairobi.
The meeting was held after two GALVmed commissioned studies reported on the role of public, private and third sectors to provide livestock health products and services in Africa. Consultations on the reports were held with attendees providing feedback and validation of the reports’ findings.
Participants produced an action plan to improve delivery of livestock health products and services in Africa. A prioritised list of areas was also created to pinpoint needs for new or amended legal and administrative procedures that could improve delivery.
GALVmed held a related meeting in India from the 3rd to 4th September to discuss the GALVmed-commissioned report and similar issues affecting India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
The final GALVmed-commissioned reports are currently under final review and will be published at a later date in our Document Repository.
