This morning I have launched the IT System for Monitoring Antimicrobial Resistance in Livestock Farming in Uganda. The project which is funded by the Government of Uganda through the Research and Innovations Fund (Mak-RIF) is crucial to animal and human health.
I also toured the state-of-the-art biosecurity labs installed with funding from the Government through an African Development Bank loan. The level 2 and 3 labs will enable our researchers conduct high level research on vaccines.
