Results Strengths : Organizational structure and hierarchical levels appear to be well defined. Completion of ongoing review will demonstrate the degree of improvements made The DVS has well defined activities aimed at training and recruiting. At the completion of the evaluation, a complete set of documents was provided on the restructuring of the Veterinary Service. Weaknesses : Understaffed due to vacancies, one reason being that there is not sufficient qualified professional technical personnel present in the country, often higher professionals leave for better paying jobs in the private sector once skills and experience have been obtained within VS (e.g. laboratory) No VS involvement (no veterinarians present, nor VS personnel) in municipal and local nonexport abattoirs. Although very low throughput abattoirs, these can be most likely points of occurrence of emerging diseases Insufficient numbers of professionals and technical personnel north of the VCF Many of the welltrained professionals (with postgraduate degrees) are not Namibian citizens and remain in Namibia as temporary residents.
