Abstract:

Poor health remains one of the main factors limiting livestock production in Africa. Many of the major epidemic diseases can be controlled economically and considerable progress has been made in the past. However, during the last decade a progressive deterioration of the quality of veterinary care has been observed, resulting in the re-emergence of numerous diseases, dramatically exemplified in the major epidemic of Rinderpest. This paper analyzes the reasons for this downward trend in the quality of animal health care. The paper describes the importance of the livestock subsector in sub - Saharan Africa, and reviews the Bank role in the development of this subsector, showing that veterinary interventions generally are well accepted by the producers. However, producers' demand is not being adequately met by the Government services; to the contrary the quality of the services is deteriorating.
