    The Ethiopia One Health legal framework
    A livestock value chain perspective on emerging zoonotic diseases and antimicrobial resistance

    The anticipated transformation of the Ethiopian livestock sector in the coming decades will result in increased public health risks. In order to well address these challenges, national and sub-national governments should adopt a One Health approach, which allows the mitigation of the negative effects of public health threats that originate at the interface between humans, animals and the different environments in which they operate. This paper provides an assessment on the extent to which the prevailing legislative framework facilitates the implementation of the One Health approach in Ethiopia, and opportunities for legislative reforms. We use a skeleton livestock value chain structure – including imports, production, marketing, processing, retailing and consumption – to identify the major actors at each node of the value livestock chain, and gather available major legal texts that are expected to shape their behaviours. The assessment focuses on actions related to the prevention, detection and control of emerging zoonotic diseases and antimicrobial resistance, with particular attention on activities that allow the implementation of the One Health approach on the ground.

    Africa Sustainable Livestock 2050: Biosecurity and public health practices along the poultry value chain in Uganda
    Evidence from Mukono and Wakiso districts
    2022
    Also available in:

    In Uganda, to satisfy the rapidly increasing demand of growing urban populations for animal source food (ASFs), livestock holdings and value chains in and around peri-urban and urban areas are transforming more rapidly than elsewhere in the country, exacerbating the potential negative impacts of livestock keeping on the environment and public health. In order to identify major public health hazards associated with the particularly rapidly expanding poultry value chain(s), we surveyed the poultry value chain actors in Wakiso and Mukono districts. We assessed their business practices and the extent to which they comply with recommended legislation on biosecurity and public health practices.
