In order to help the nation’s Veterinary Service Department (VSD) combat the recent anthrax outbreak, Zipline, a drone manufacturer, and technological innovator Cowtribe have joined forces.
They are working together to prevent additional losses and protect the welfare of the animals and the communities that depend on them.
In order to help the VSD, Cowtribe is using its ground-breaking vaccination and outbreak control technology.
Their cutting-edge technology makes it possible to gather crucial information in real-time, greatly boosting the VSD’s capability for monitoring and guiding management and containment measures.
According to Mawuli Atiemo, General Manager of Zipline Ghana, “We are expanding the reach of our drone technology to deliver life-saving vaccines to the most remote locations in response to the devastating anthrax outbreak.”
This endeavour is a replication of our prior partnership with the government during the height of the COVID-19 crisis, when we supplied more than two million vaccines to various dosing centres with success.
According to Peter Awin, Co-Founder and CEO of Cowtribe, “Cowtribe remains deeply committed to our farming communities, especially during such crises.”
By supporting the initial manufacture of 100,000 doses of the anthrax vaccine, we want to lessen the severity of the outbreak and secure the futures of our farmers.
The director of the Veterinary Services Directorate, Dr. Patrick Abakeh, praised the public-private collaboration.
He expressed confidence that the combination of Zipline’s skills for airborne logistics and Cowtribe’s data-driven expertise will hasten the control of the anthrax epidemic.
