TİKA Supported Establishment of Biochemistry Laboratory in Chad

The “biochemistry laboratory” renovated and equipped by Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) has been put into service in Chad.

The economy and employment of Chad, a Central African country, hinge on agriculture and animal husbandry. However, animal diseases have a detrimental effect on the economy, resulting in decreased productivity in production. To resolve this problem, the “biochemistry laboratory,” supported by TİKA, was established. The biochemistry laboratory, which is affiliated to the Livestock Research Institute for Development (IRED) in Chad, has been renovated and equipped with modern devices by TİKA and has been put back into service.

Animal diseases will be investigated

Dr. Annour Adoum Batil, who completed his doctorate in animal husbandry with scholarships from Türkiye, and his team will investigate the animal diseases encountered in Chad at the laboratory established by TİKA, and will enable Chad to develop animal vaccines using its own resources.

The Secretary of State of Chad’s Ministry of Livestock and Animal Production, Mrs. Fatime Kodbe; the General Director of IRED, Dr. Abdel-Aziz Arada Izzedine, national media members and numerous other guests attended the opening ceremony of the laboratory.

During his speech, the General Director of IRED, Dr. Abdel-Aziz Arada Izzedine stated that the established biochemistry laboratory can be utilized even for analyzing various human diseases, such as diabetes, when necessary. He also mentioned that this laboratory is currently the most advanced laboratory in Chad.
