KENYA: TECHNOLOGY AT THE SERVICE OF ANIMAL HEALTH

In Isiolo County (Kenya), herders usually live far away from veterinary health services. With the local veterinary authorities and our partner Biovision, we trained 18 members of the local communities in animal diseases reporting, and we equipped them with a smartphone. Thus, they are now able to diagnose and report the herds’ diseases to Isiolo’s veterinary services, who can then act quickly to stop the diseases’ propagation.
 

Discover in French or German how technology helps herders and veterinary health services to treat animals’ diseases!
 

This activity is part of the project UPICAM, of which you can read an overview here.
