Training and accreditation of veterinarians and veterinary paraprofessionals.
All stakeholders have a responsibility to ensure that the veterinary sector is rid-off quacks and unregulated personnel to ensure that animal and human health is not compromised, His Excellency Governor (Dr.) Moses Kiarie Badilisha has told a workshop on certification and regulation taking place in Ol’Kalou.
The workshop, jointly organized by the County Government’s department of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, and the Kenya Veterinary Board has brought together veterinarians and veterinary paraprofessionals for training and accreditation under the Continuous Professional Development programme. The national government, under the Kenya Veterinary Board, is in charge of regulations, while the County Government is responsible for veterinary services.
Assuring them of his administration’s commitment to anchoring livestock production through both policy and budgetary support as a way to increase our yields, Governor Badilisha noted that among many sector-specific interventions like extension services, liquid nitrogen and breeds’ improvement through A.I, “the County Government will also allocate funds to rehabilitate the former Tulaga Veterinary Clinic and establish a veterinary diagnostic laboratory.
The laboratory will allow veterinary clinicians to perform basic diagnostic tests for confirmatory diagnosis, saving farmers from losses resulting from misdiagnosis and sometimes the death of their animals.”
In attendance were the CECM Hon. Francis Miring’u, the CEO KVB (Dr.) Mary Agutu and a host of other county and national governments’ officials
