Ectoparasiticides and the challenge of Tick resistance

National Drug Authority controls the manufacture, importation, distribution and use of both human and veterinary drugs in the country. The three main concerns of veterinary drug regulation are quality, safety and efficacy (effectiveness). Veterinary drugs include acaricides which are the most important of animal drugs in terms of volumes and capital investment. Acaricides in Uganda are registered by NDA following well laid procedures that conform to international standards and following recommendation from Ministry of Agriculture, Animal industry and Fisheries (MAAIF), basing on pre-registration field trials on efficacy. These trials have always been coordinated by Ministry of Agriculture and carried out by the National Livestock Resources Research Institute (NaLIRRI). This ensures that NDA registers acaricides that are tested and confirmed effective in the Ugandan environment.
