South Africa: Five Diseases, One #Vaccine – a Boost for Emerging #Livestock Farmers in Sub-Saharan #Africa

Sril Group Ltd, Nigeria

Our vaccines will have the potential to control six important African livestock diseases. But, in order for them to be effectively used by emerging rural farmers, education in livestock care and vaccine use is critical and has been initiated.

Ultimately we see the result of this project being greater food and economic security through improved animal health as it relates to the increased availability of food and other products from animals, such as milk, cheeses, meat, wool, hides, yoghurt and ‘maas’ (soured/fermented milk). The vaccines should be low-cost, easy to administer, stable and provide long-term protection.” – David Wallace, ARC
