    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 South Asia, PPLPI originally sought engagement in two states of India: Orissa and Andhra Pradesh, because these two states have relatively large numbers of livestock-dependent poor while the political climate seemed to offer good prospects for pro-poor livestock policy reform. In close consultation with local stakeholders, the policy context in the two States was reviewed and a number of livestock-related policy measures affecting the poor livestock keepers and desirable changes were identifi ed. In her assessment of the political economy of the livestock sector in Andhra Pradesh and Orissa, carried out for PPLPI, Turner (2004, PPLPI Working Paper 9) concluded that pro-poor implementation of animal health service reforms was one of five potential areas in which PPLPI and partners could engage.

    Livestock Service Delivery in Andhra Pradesh: Veterinarians’ Perspective

    Andhra Pradesh has a strong, well qualified, committed and forward looking State Animal Husbandry Department (AHD). The state has a large network of veterinary infrastructure (veterinary dispensaries, hospitals and polyclinics, rural livestock units, and AI centres) and individuals - professional veterinarians and the para-veterinary staff. However, changing internal and external environments require the animal health and breeding service delivery system to become more dynamic and needs-oriented , financially sustainable, and closer to the ground. Veterinarians are a critical part and major stakeholder of any livestock service delivery system. They are the link with the livestock owners and hence have insights into the ground level reality. To inform the Livestock Service Delivery Reform process in the state of Andhra Pradesh (AP) being facilitated by PPLPI-CALPI, it was important to also get their perspective on the main issues and constraints they faced and to elicit some suggestions on enhancing the quality and reach of the livestock services in the state.
