The LIDISKI TEAM recently concluded an energy audit of the National Veterinary Research Institute in Vom and Bauchi Outstations to begin the process of purchasing and installing solar panels that will help improve cold chain during vaccine delivery. This will help maintain the potency of vaccines from the point of the manufacture to the point of use.
This project is funded by @euinnigeria
Peste Des Petits Ruminants (PPR) sampling
LIDISKI commenced PPR sampling (collection of tissue samples from suspected PPR cases) in sheep and goats in the pilot states of Plateau and Bauchi and has completed some phases of this process. Collection and serotyping new samples for PPR is also ongoing to identify novel strains of PPR virus circulating in the region.
