    To provide support to the PPLPI-CALPI supported Livestock Service Delivery Reform Process, a comprehensive study of para-veterinary training programs and ground operations was carried out. The first report entitled ‘Para-veterinary Training Programmes in Andhra Pradesh’ covered various aspects of training of para-veterinarians and of different categories of ‘Animal Health Workers’ (40 to 180 days courses, to prepare candidates for placing as community based selfsupporting animal health workers) in Andhra Pradesh. This second report covers results of field research and discussion on the various ground level issues in Service Delivery by the community based Animal Health Workers (AHWs) including the support and supervision available to them for service delivery.

    In the recent development literature, there is an increasing recognition of the immense potential of the livestock sector in enhancing the income of the poor. Livestock distribution is more equitable than land distribution. Thus, the livestock sector provides a natural entry point for poverty alleviation programs. A major issue affecting the livestock economy, however, is the effective delivery of livestock services. Ongoing studies in Andhra Pradesh, initiated by CALPI and PPLPI, have identifie d the increasingly important role of para-veterinarians in livestock service delivery. Despite the importance of the service performed by the para-veterinarians, there are severe concerns about the quality of the latter. It was frequently alleged that the paraveterinarians often go beyond their brief and perform services that they are not equipped or trained for. This not only holds true for Andhra Pradesh. A review of the international literature on the performance of para-veterinarians highlig hts similar trends. It is, therefore, important that a strong monitoring and regulating systems be in place to ‘optimize’ the contribution of paraveterinarians to the animal health system.
