Verified Funding


Limited resources (financial and human) limit the response capacity of the veterinary services to respond to possible livestock disease outbreak information, particularly in remote areas.



The system allows to triage disease related information by veterinary services staff and only respond to those reports that pose a real threat to livestock health.

Target Beneficiaries

Women sentries, veterinary services and livestock owners

Innovation Description

This innovation is a mobile application for trained sentries in remote locations to report symptoms of livestock diseases. The app allows sentries to input the details of livestock symptoms and to upload images to a central database, which can then be accessed by experts. Verified reports can then be sent to local veterinary authorities to take appropriate action.

Competitive Advantage

It is normally difficult to get livestock disease related information from remote settings, the innovation helps overcome that.
