Kurdistan Allocates 2.771 Billion IQD to Combat Livestock Disease

The Kurdistan Regional Government has allocated IQD 2.771 billion to combat and control the spread of Hemorrhagic Septicemia Disease in the region. The move is part of an effort to protect the region's livestock and public health, as the disease continues to pose a significant threat to the agricultural sector.

This comes as the Ninth Cabinet emphasizes its interest in the agricultural sector and its commitment to the economic diversification agenda of the Kurdistan Region. The funds will be allocated from the budget of the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources in the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Prime Minister Masrour Barzani has spearheaded the effort to combat the disease and ensure the sustainability of the region's agricultural sector. By investing in disease control and prevention measures, the government hopes to protect the livelihoods of farmers and ensure that the region remains a vital contributor to the country's economy.

Hemorrhagic Septicemia Disease is a bacterial infection that primarily affects livestock such as cattle, sheep, and buffalo. It can also be transmitted to humans and poses a serious public health threat. The Kurdistan Regional Government's allocation of funds towards controlling the spread of the disease is a crucial step towards protecting the region's agricultural sector and public health.

With this new investment, the Ninth Cabinet continues to showcase its commitment to the Kurdistan Region's agricultural sector and overall economic diversification agenda.
