Mnyandoe participates in animal vaccination campaign in Tanzania

The so-called East Coast Fever (ECF) is a disease caused by parasites of cattle, goats and sheep in countries along the East African Pacific Coast. It is transmitted by ticks. In Tanzania, there is a general lack of veterinarians for the treatment of livestock.

In order to counteract this and other animal diseases, a project was launched in 2015 to provide training for qualified livestock vaccinators. At the beginning of the project, there were only about 200 people who were able to vaccinate the animals - a very small number considering Tanzania's population of around 53 million! In the meantime, the number of qualified vaccinators could be doubled to 400. A further step will now be to conduct its first ECF vaccinator training in Tanzania in December 2017.
