Abstract
The poultry sub-sector is crucially important in the context of agricultural growth and improvement of diets of the people in Uganda. The sub-sector is particularly important in that it is a significant source for the supply of protein and nutrition in households’ nutritional intake. It is an attractive economic activity as well, especially to women and poor population. However, the poultry industry faces several challenges among which are diseases. I intend to survey both free-ranging and commercial chicken for Infectious bronchitis, a production disease, blood parasites and zoonotic pathogens. I intend to evaluate Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification LAMP for the diagnosis of some of the zoonotic pathogens. I will also undertake a comparative evaluation of pathogens of Guinea fowl which is a wildlife avian species but is semi-domesticated in northern Uganda, these could be a reservoir of pathogens to domestic poultry. Gastro-intestinal parasites of the birds will also be analyzed.
