In this paper we present a comprehensive overview of the sector and discuss the available evidence of impacts of aflatoxin on animal health and productivity for the region. We hope that the establishment and sharing of this knowledge base will provide the foundation for policies and programs to address the food safety issues linked to aflatoxincontaminated feeds. This is a necessary step in realizing the full economic potential of the livestock industry for the East Africa region.
