Role of KEVEVAPI in Economy

Most of livestock diseases are endemic and pose severe constrains to the livestock industry. They cause economic losses through deaths and decreased production. Some countries like the United States of America and Great Britain have used slaughter and compensation policy in control of Foot and Mouth and New Castle diseases. However, it is a very expensive policy for a developing country like Kenya to undertake. The only affordable alternative is vaccination; hence the more the need for a functional local veterinary vaccines production facility, thus KEVEVAPI, to provide the appropriate vaccines for the country. The Institute has been in existence as a Centre under Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) and has been producing vaccines to meet the local demand. This has enhanced the livestock industry to contribute to the GDP.
