Research on animal health

Blog post

The animal health flagship combines advances in vaccinology and diagnostics with refined herd health management to improve productivity and mitigate disease risks. It:

  • Evaluates animal health constraints and threats: methods and tools to identify the extent and impact of animal health constraints and how these are changing
  • Refines and adapts holistic herd health management approaches: impact of biosecurity, animal welfare and rational use of drugs
  • Develops diagnostics and vaccines: new products for monitoring and control of livestock diseases in the targeted livestock production systems
  • Develops delivery models to improve access to animal health services and products: demand-driven and gender-responsive delivery models


5. What are the most promising gains that we can expect for smallholders from animal health research discovery and delivery? How do we best achieve these?
