Andrew Gibson, Director, Worldwide Veterinary Service

Andy Gibson After working and researching in charity veterinary practice in the UK, Andy began working for Mission Rabies in 2013, initially as a volunteer, vaccinating dogs in Kolkata. His previous experience using smartphone technology in the epidemiological setting in Zanzibar, Tanzania, transferred to work on rabies and he was tasked to developing a tailor made smartphone app to overcome challenges faced during mass dog vaccination campaigns. The app has been used to record over 1.2 million dog vaccinations on projects around the world and has been demonstrated to improve the coordination of vaccination campaigns and double the vaccination coverage achieved. In addition to continued innovation in software, Andy’s work focuses on project evaluation and working to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of field operations for rabies control and dog population management. He is currently undertaking a PhD at The Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh studying the methods and outcomes of mass dog vaccination and rabies surveillance.
