Between 2014 and 2018 SVA (through our OIE collaborating center) and the National Animal Disease Diagnostics and Epidemiology Center (NADDEC) in Uganda, implemented a Twinning Project under the World Organisation for Animal Helath (OIE).
The main objective of the project was to enhance the national and regional capacity for animal disease surveillance by bridging the gap between the field and the laboratory, and improve the surveillance chain. Capacity building activities took place at both institutional and personal level through exchange of experiences, study visits, targeted training sessions, workshops, discussions, joint research projects and through the development and evaluation of new technology for field-based diagnostics. African swine fever was used as an example and for case studies. The project facilitated cost-effective and needs-adapted disease monitoring with respect to the entire chain including planning with the involvement of different stakeholders, sampling, outbreak investigation, laboratory diagnosis, analysis of results and reporting. During 27-28 November 2018 a final workshop of the project was held in Kampala, Uganda.
