Description : Throughout 2022, the ICRC team in Myitkyina supported the immunization of over 2,700 pigs and 12,000 chickens, belonging to 1,500 families living in Hpakant, Waingmaw, Sumprabum, Puta-O, Momauk, and Mansi Townships.

To prevent the spread of diseases, the ICRC works with the Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department (LBVD) to assist the affected communities and train people in remote areas as Community Animal Health Workers (CAHWs).

“Our objective is to reduce the mortality rate of chickens and pigs from annual disease outbreaks and improve meat consumption in the communities,” said Seng Ja, ICRC Myitkyina Veterinarian.
