Message from the Principal
Professor John David Kabasa (Phd)
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Bio-Security (COVAB), at Makerere University. At COVAB, we embrace the diversity of priorities including animal health, public health, environmental health, animal resource development, molecular biology and bio security.
We are also committed to employment creation in Uganda and the rest of Africa, by equipping youth with practical skills in various disciplines such as science education, practical laboratory skills, livestock product development and processing, wildlife management and Animal resource management.
President Yoweri Museveni has hailed Makerere University for bringing knowledge from the University to communities."You have replicated what happened 2000 years ago when Jesus Christ chose to come on earth and save sinners instead of staying in heaven and sending messengers," the President said amidst applause from the congregation gathered at Rukoni Sub-County, Ntungamo district to witness the award ceremony of Makerere University in the community.
