Animal diseases as factors limiting livestock development in Africa

Animal diseases as factors limiting livestock development in Africa

Medit 4(2): 4-7

Livestock resources are now decreasing in Africa due to inadequate agro-zootechnical strategies applied and to the inadequate national and international health policies. Economic efforts and human resources have been largely impotent due to health problems and social and territorial diversity. To improve the African agro-zootechnical sector, veterinary services should be strengthened so that they can offer an effective control and improve workers' professional capacities through information.
