Above: AWARFA-N Ghana Chapter Launch (September 2020)
Since its establishment in 2018, the AWARFA-N has developed from the concept of a single continental network to maturing Regional and country networks. More recently one regional network (AWARFA East Africa) and Country networks are being established around the continent. A consequence of this development is a broader buy-in by stakeholders as well as increased responsibilities for the regional and country chapters to ensure proper operation of their networks.
The 2021 World Veterinary Day theme is The Veterinarian Response to the Covid-19 Crisis. AU-IBAR will commemorate this day by discussing pertinent issues driving the implementation of the Animal Health Strategy for Africa (AHSA) through a podcast series and a webinar.
More information on how AU-IBAR will be commemoration this event will be shared on this platform and AU-IBAR Website. If you are a veterinarian, we invite you to share your experiences of how you have responded to the COVID-19 Crises. Join the Discussion
Twenty-Twenty-One (2021) marks 70 years since the African Union InterAfrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) was founded. With its current mission to provide leadership and integrated support services for the development of animal resources in Africa, this is not just a celebratory year but also a reflective one.
AU-IBAR joined the rest of the world in an online campaign commemorating International Women’s Day #IWD, by highlighting quotes from women in the animal resources community, drawing on the global theme for this year: #ChoosetoChallenge.
“Raise your hand high to show you're in and that you commit to choose to challenge and call out inequality”
AU IBAR thanks all these women who shared their experiences.
