Objective:

To increase access of agropastoralists in South Sudan to animal health services and of internally displaced, returnees and other vulnerable groups to fishing gear.

Key partners:

Government Ministry of Animal Resources and Fisheries, State Ministry of Animal Resources and Fisheries and various service providers including NGOs, faith-based organizations and community animal health workers (CAHWs).

Beneficiaries reached:

47 194 households benefited from livestock activities, while 6 570 households received fishing gear.

Activities implemented:
  • In total, 440 026 livestock were vaccinated against contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, peste des petits ruminants, anthrax and haemorrhagic septicaemia, while 11 556 cattle were treated for East Coast fever (ECF) and 9 080 goats and sheep were treated for pneumonia.
  • A total of 6 570 beneficiary households received fishing gear (fishing twine and hooks), including returnees and displaced fishing families.
  • Trainings were held on cold chain maintenance, disease control strategy, organizing vaccination campaigns and fish processing and preservation.
  • Assessments were carried out on disease reporting and surveillance, vaccination activities/storage and livestock production and utilization, as well as investigations on ECF, anthrax and other disease outbreaks.
Impact:
  • The training of CAHWs helped improve livestock owners’ access to vaccines and veterinary services.
  • Thanks to the livestock activities, the number of diseased or dying animals decreased, while the number of milking cows increased.
  • Training in fish processing/preservation techniques helped reduce fresh fish spoilage and increase the shelf-life of processed fish, boosting the food and nutritional status of beneficiary households.
