Keeping poultry alive in Angola. Developing local capacities to control Newcastle disease

Angola

Développement et Coopération EUROP AID

Titre : Keeping poultry alive in Angola. Developing local capacities to control Newcastle disease

Pays : Angola

Durée : 2007-2010

Partenaires : German Agro Action (Welthungerhilfe) ; Ministry of Agriculture of Angola (Institute of Veterinary Services and Investigation) ; Kyeema Foundation

Contexte  : Agriculture has a big potential in Angola but its impact on economic development is limited by the lack of knowledge, services and infrastructure. Avian products are a very important source of food and income for poor farmers. However, the Newcastle disease, a kind of avian flu that does not infect humans, limits this potential. A vaccine exists but it is not known by smallholder farmers and it must be imported.

Objectifs
Develop local capacities to control the Newcastle disease through information and vaccination campaigns and trainings

Impact
The number of participants in avian vaccine campaigns increased by 65%.
More than 700 community-based veterinary scouts were trained.
Vaccine provided to almost 300,000 animals in 9 municipalities.
Provision of technical assistance in 7 provinces (out of 18) to enable institutions to organise national vaccination campaigns.

EC contribution : €1.7 million (90% of the project)
