South Africa is grappling with a severe shortage of veterinarians, affecting efforts to combat animal diseases like foot and mouth disease. The South African Veterinary Council has reported an annual exodus of around 150 veterinarians from the country. In response, deputy Higher Education minister Buti Manamela says government has launched a veterinary career guidance awareness programme aimed at schoolchildren. He says the initiative aims to raise awareness about veterinary careers and attract more students to address the shortage.
