This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Associated with Projects R7597, R7596, R8151, R8022, R8208, R8042,
R7173, R7987, R7229, R7357, R5406, R8318. A new network of African
universities is being developed to produce teaching materials for
disseminating the results of DFID-funded research into animal health and
livestock production in sub-Saharan Africa. It aims to overcome the fact
that the massive amount of DFID-funded research done to improve animal
health and livestock keeping has had very little impact—mainly because
new knowledge simply isn't reaching the people who need it. The African
Universities' Veterinary ELearning Consortium (AUVEC) therefore aims to
provide bite-sized, easy-to-revise, distance-learning materials that
animal health professionals can use to regularly update their knowledge
and skills. This developing network consists of veterinary departments
and veterinary bodies in Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania,
Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
