Welcome to our Annual Report 2020
The year under review saw the continued progress of our work to improve understanding of the potential of canine olfactory diagnostics, and to help save more lives with our medical alert dogs. It ended in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, which we know will have a major impact on the Charity.
The pandemic presents huge challenges for Medical Detection Dogs, but also a great opportunity to harness the ability of dogs to detect the odour of Covid-19 and help in the fight against the pandemic. The increased media interest in our Covid-19 research project, which is well advanced at the time of writing, also gives us an opportunity to inform a much wider audience about the potential for dogs to help improve the diagnosis of human disease.
We hope that increased awareness brings with it much needed financial support.
