02_1"Ukrainian Laboratories, FAO and the EBRD against African Swine Fever:Challenge is Accepted!" is the title of the press conference which was held at the State Research Institute for Laboratory Diagnostics and Veterinary and Sanitary Expertise in Kyiv on February 1, 2018.


The press conference was attended by the Deputy Director for Agribusiness, Senior Banker of the EBRD-Ukraine LesyaKuzmenko, the Economist of the Investment Department of FAO and Project Manager of the FAO / EBRD Technical Assistance Project "Awareness raising on African swine fever in Ukraine" DmytroPrykhodko, the Head of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety products and consumer protection VolodymyrLapa, the rector of Sumy National Agrarian University VolodymyrLadykaand others. The moderator of the event was Oksana Yurchenko, the vice president of the Association of Pig Farmers of Ukraine and FAO / EBRD Technical Assistance Project Coordinator "Awareness raising on African swine fever in Ukraine".

The topic is currently very relevant for our country: during the period of 2012- 2018, 326 outbreaks of AFS were recorded. This is one of the biggest challenges facing Ukraine's pig production today. But experts say that most likely, even this small figure does not reflect the actual picture, and the situation is much more serious, because the timely and reliable diagnosis is hampered by factors such as low awareness of AFS, lack of equipment and reagents, and most importantly, qualified personnel in the state competent authorities.

According to the expert estimates, if urgent actions fail to take place, the burden of the negative consequences for the industry will increase. Pig-breeding is an important sector not only from an economic but also from a social point of view.

Taking into consideration these conditions, the assistance to state laboratories of veterinary and sanitary expertise and the departments of veterinary medicine of agrarian universities in the training of diagnostic specialists provided by FAO with the EBRD is invaluable. "Training of specialists for work on equipment for the timely detection of the acute respiratory tract causative agent will complement state monitoring and financing programs and other measures for the effective overcoming of the disease," convinced the participants of the press conference.

At the end of the event, the solemn donation of high-precision PCR equipment to detect the acute respiratory tract infectious agent, which will be installed in the state laboratories of Kyiv and three regions of Ukraine, was held.
