About The Project

LIDISKI is a European Union (EU) funded, £2.5M project that will improve livestock disease surveillance and control in Nigeria. Launched on March 4, 2020 in Abuja, the four-year Livestock Disease Surveillance Knowledge Integration (LIDISKI) project aims to boost the livelihoods of smallholder livestock and poultry farmers in Plateau state – the pilot zone, and subsequently 8 other northern states.
The project is funded by the European Union (EU), through the DeSIRA (Development-Smart Innovation through Research in Agriculture) initiative lunched by the EU Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO). The EU delegation in Abuja will follow the project implementation.

DISTINCTIVE SYMPTOMS OF NEWCASTLE DISEASE

The only way to help the birds recover when the signs/symptoms have already manifested is by providing supportive care and antibiotic therapy to prevent secondary bacteria infection. Hence, the proven and most potent option that smallholder farmers should explore to keep their flock safe is to properly vaccinate the birds against Newcastle disease and maintain adequate biosecurity measures.
