Message from the Principal


Dear visitor,

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. We aim at taking universities into communities, hence increasing the general welfare of our population that largely depends on animals in terms of food security and poverty eradication. Not only are we a research institution and a community service provider here at COVAB, we are also an academic institution that provides training of the next generation of veterinary practitioners, scientists, biomedical laboratory technologists, Public Health professionals, Wildlife Managers and Animal Resource Professionals. 
As you will discover from contents of this website, we are working towards continued excellence in the pursuit of transformative knowledge, technology, innovations, skills and services.
Whether your visit to our website is motivated by business, academics or social reasons, as an animal owner or scientist, as a student or school leaver, or just someone with interest in veterinary and related sciences, I hope that you can access all the information you require. I encourage you to visit us in person where I know you will encounter a professional and caring attitude from our staff. Please join us in our commitment to the health and welfare of animals, people and their environment.
