This study (Mar-Sep 2010) was commissioned by the Government of Nigeria to summarize and generate evidence on the impact of food-borne disease associated with animal source foods. The overall objective of this study was to assess the costs associated with consumption of poor quality meat in Nigeria.

The sub-objectives included assessment of:

  • major hazards associated with meat;
  • prevalence of meat-borne hazards in livestock, meat and humans;
  • knowledge, attitudes and practice of meat value chain actors;
  • health burden of meat-borne disease and other burdens;
  • appropriate level of protection; and
  • recommendation of possible approaches to improving meat safety in Nigeria.
