1.1 million for the "hero rats" of Apopo in Mozambique

1.1 million for the "hero rats" of Apopo in Mozambique

On 29 September, the Government of Flanders donated an amount of 1,1 million euros to vzw Apopo in Mozambique. Apopo trains giant pouched rats in the detection of tuberculosis.

In countries with limited resources, tuberculosis remains a major problem. Apopo succeeded in training rats in the detection of TB.

Apopo started this initiative in 2011. In the third phase of this project, Apopo will continue to improve the TB detection rate by switching to more reliable and advanced control technology. The Government of Flanders has allocated grants to APOPO since 2002, initially for its mine detection programme in Mozambique.
