Boosting Uganda’s Investments in Livestock Development (2019-2023): Introducing the Rift Valley Fever (RVF) component

  1. 1. #BuildUganda Boosting Uganda’s Investments in Livestock Development (2019-2023) Introducing the Rift Valley Fever (RVF) component Dan Tumusiime (MAAIF), Bernard Bett (ILRI), Emily Ouma (ILRI), Samuel Oyola (ILRI), Rosemary Sang (KEMRI), Cornelia Silaghi (FLI), Martin Groschup (FLI), Martin Barasa (VSF-G), Ard Nijhof (FUB), Cristian Raileanu (FLI) #BuildUganda Stakeholder meeting, Kampala, Uganda 7 June 2019
  2. 2. Why this component • RVF – serious zoonotic disease with severe impacts on livestock production and trade • Multiple outbreaks in Uganda since March 2016 – impacts not yet quantified • Geographical range of the disease slowly expanding with climate change • Poor understanding on occurrence patterns and relative effectiveness of the available interventions • OIE notifiable disease Countries that have had RVF outbreak(s) in Africa Districts that have reported RVF outbreaks in Uganda
  3. 3. What we want to achieve • Minimize the impacts of RVF by improving capacity for surveillance and response at the national and community levels o Better risk prediction o Evidence-based disease control polices o Improved awareness about the disease
  4. 4. Who will benefit • Policy institutions – MAAIF, MoH, Meteorology, etc • Human/animal health service providers • Livestock value chain actors – improved KAP • Research and training institutions
  5. 5. What we will do • Improving knowledge on RVF epidemiology o Genotyping – RVF and other viruses o Serology (establish Gn/Gc distribution) o Outbreak response o Entomological studies o Risk mapping • Socio-economic studies o Ex-ante analyses of control options o KAP questionnaire surveys o Gender assessments – exposure and constraints on uptake of interventions • National action plans/policy work and extension o Contingency plans/decision support tools o Community trainings National action plans/control policy Socio-economics Epidemiology • Genotyping • Entomology • Outbreak investigation Improved surveillance and response
  6. 6. Deliverables • RVF risk map • Genetic characterization of circulating strains – vaccine interventions • Improved RVF national action plans • Training and communication materials • Capacity building  Improved capacity on vector sampling/surveys and biological sampling  PhD/MSc training
  7. 7. RVF Soroti Isingiro Rakai Sembabule Regions with observed outbreaks and high sero- prevalence: Isingiro, Sembabule, Kabale Regions with no outbreaks but high sero-prevalence: Butebo, Budaka, Soroti
