About this Publication:
The East African Community (EAC) is a Regional Economic Community (REC) established by the EAC Treaty of 2000 and is made up six Partner States: Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. The main objective of the EAC is to foster integration and cooperation among its Partner States. In this regard the EAC, through the support of the Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicines (GALVmed), has been engaged in activities to harmonize technical requirements for veterinary vaccines registration in East Africa. These activities are expected to have an impact on agriculture and livestock production and, consequently, to contribute to food security, and to enhance trade integration and growth of the East African economy.
