Capacity building in Integrated Management of Transboundary Animal Diseases and Zoonoses (CIMTRADZ)

This special issue summarizes accomplishments of a project “Capacity Building in Integrated Management of Transboundary Animal Diseases and Zoonoses (CIMTRADZ),” whose focus was to develop human and institutional capacity to manage transboundary animal diseases and zoonoses in Eastern and Central Africa - through transformative education, collaborative research and training, and community engagement in order to promote animal health, public health and food security. CIMTRADZ accomplished its objectives through: 1) Partnership Models, 2) Teaching, Curriculum Development, and the cultural Boma (interactive workshop), 3) Original Scientific Research, 4) Surveillance and Outbreak Investigations, and 5) Outreach and Service Learning. CIMTRADZ accomplishments are summarized in papers presented under five themes. Other detailed reports submitted to United States Agency for International Development (USAID) are available at the Mississippi State University website. The concluding paper in this issue by Professors Kaneene, Khaitsa and Kabasa, summarizes key accomplishments and lessons learned from CIMTRADZ, and their implications for Africa and other institutions that may consider implementing similar projects in Africa.
