Analysing African Swine fever epidemiology on the Kenya-Uganda border

On 2-3 October 2013 the closing workshop of the BecA‐ILRI‐CSIRO‐AusAID project on Understanding African Swine fever (ASF) epidemiology as a basis for control was held in Nairobi, Kenya. Participants who included project staff and other invited guests of the workshop titled ‘Analysis of African Swine fever epidemiology and pig value chains to underpin design of an ASF risk management strategy on the Kenya-Uganda border’ presented on the background of the disease in Busia, findings of the various research activities that were carried out, pathways to prevention and control of the disease in Africa among others topics that generated rich and informative discussions.
