Consultant – Formulation of Animal Health Master Plan

Project/Consultancy Title: Formulate an Animal Health Master Plan Project Location(s): Kampala, Uganda 1. Background The Government of Uganda instituted various macroeconomic and microeconomic policies (liberalization, privatization, decentralization, and civil service reforms) to stimulate economic growth and rural development. In an effort to eradicate poverty, the government developed a Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP) with a Plan for Modernization of Agriculture (PMA) as abroad agricultural development strategy of PEAP. These frameworks guided the development of the livestock industry in the country. For effective delivery of veterinary services, the government put in place various policies, laws and strategies; instituted various institutional frameworks that included the policy on National Delivery of Veterinary Services, Development Strategy and Investment Plan (DSIP), the National Drug policy and Authority Act, and other policies all aimed at improving the livestock sub-sector. In respect to animal diseases control, the relevant Acts of parliament available include: The Animal Diseases Act 1964 (revised in 2005), The Veterinary Surgeons Act 1964 (revised editions), The National Drug Authority Policy and Statute 1993, the Cattle traders Act and the Hides and Skins Act. The European Union (EU) identified the opportunity of the beef sector within its National Indicative Plan (NIP) for Uganda and agreed to fund - through the 11th European Development Fund (11th EDF) - a 5-year project, implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industries and Fisheries (MAAIF), to support the development of the beef sector such that it could realize its full potential. The project is called “Developing a Market-Oriented and Environmentally Sustainable Beef Meat Industry in Uganda" (as entitled in the Financing Agreement (FA) no. UG/FED/037-994), and from herein will be referred to by the acronym “MOBIP”. The Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries through the Directorate of Animal Resources has continued to ensure promotion of livestock health, production and consumption of animal products through investment in appropriate animal disease control and production activities. The Directorate is currently responsible for controlling common animal diseases and vectors with special emphasis on FMD, CBPP, Rabies, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), BSE, Rift Valley Fever (RVF), trypanosomiasis and Rinderpest. It is notable that the development of the animal industry in the country is significantly hampered by the high prevalence of diseases. Due to this factor, the GoU has identified animal disease and vector control as a key strategy towards the eradication of poverty in rural areas. In order to achieve this, an evaluation of the existing animal disease control strategies needs to be undertaken with the aim of developing a comprehensive Animal Health Master plan for the country. 1.1 Structure of Engagement MOBIP is being implemented by Human Dynamics, a team from which is embedded within MAAIF for the implementation of the interventions within MOBIP.
