AFSCAN and USAPA Collaboration Proves Fruitful

By Dr. Berna Nakanwagi

The Uganda Small Animal practitioner’s Association (USAPA) has continued to grow in membership and activity as a result of associating with AFSCAN. In addition to availing USAPA members with opportunities for continuous professional development of which I was personally a beneficially, AFSCAN supported USAPA with office equipment. This has enabled USAPA to fill a gap of continuous coordination of members and their activities by taking on an administrative assistant who will be coordinating USAPA activities starting August 2016.

USAPA members conducted the community small animal open clinic at Makerere University, Kampala, on the 27th and 28th April 2016 on behalf of the Uganda Veterinary Association. Rabies control was carried out through vaccination, population control by surgical sterilization, community sensitization and education through consultation. Treatment of various ailments was also part of the clinic activity.
