A Proximity Campaign

By July 30th, 2019 in Animal Health, Component I, News Alert

An administration that is closer to the people that it serves. People stay at home. It is the State that goes to them. Their names and phone numbers are known. MINEPIA agents will introduce themselves to citizens. The traditional authority will assess them. Each chief shall sign the vaccination form. Even the livestock farmer signs and mentions the date of vaccination.

Two major actors are entering the organisation and animation of the campaign. First and foremost, it is the administrative authority. Indeed, the Divisional Officer convenes all village chiefs in his sub division. In turn, village chiefs, the second major actors, designate two people. They must come from the community. People know and trust them. The two people shall “go door-to-door”. They shall record the name of each lifestock farmer and the number of his/her sheep and goats on a form. MINEPIA agents shall use this list to prepare vaccination equipment. It is a free operation. MINEPIA staff shall collect samples before and after vaccination. The comparison between both samples shall allow various crews to specify if animals are immune or not. The same samples shall provide information on the state of the disease within the community.
