The University of Nairobi signed a consultancy agreement with FAO to provide training of personnel working in the meat subsector at certificate level on meat hygiene and quality assurance in both Somaliland and Puntland. The objective of the consultancy was to develop capacity for the Ministries of Livestock in both Somaliland and Puntland to implement meat quality assurance through training of staff to certificate level. The training was undertaken by staff from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine through the Department of Public Health, Pharmacology and Toxicology between November 2012 and March 2013. Forty four staff (24 in Somaliland and 20 in Puntland) undertook the training that will lead to award of the Certificate in Meat Hygiene and Quality Assurance of the University of Nairobi.
