Seasonal disease incidence in the Sanaag Region of Somaliland

Publication year: 
1994

This article describes a seasonal disease calendar exercise which was carried out with herders in the Sanaag region of Somaliland. The information it provided was then used to plan a Primary Veterinary Assistant training programme. One surprising finding was that common ailments that cause loss of production were considered by the herders to be less important than infrequent, but often terminal, infectious diseases.
