Livestock Health Flagship: Initial ideas for Integrated Core Project

  1. 1. Livestock Health Flagship: Initial ideas for Integrated Core Project Barbara Wieland, ILRI Livestock CRP Priority Countries Planning Meeting 26 – 27 March 2019 Nairobi, Kenya
  2. 2. CoA1: Constraints and Threats CoA3: Vaccines and Diagnostics CoA2: Herd Health CoA4: Services and Products
  3. 3. Livestock health flagship key messages • Animal diseases cause immense production losses globally, threatening livelihoods and food security of livestock keepers. • The majority of the emerging infectious diseases in humans are zoonotic, with livestock keepers at high risk of exposure to these threats. • Improved animal health management mitigates production losses, secures livelihoods and increases the availability of nutritious and safe animal source foods. • Coordinated collaboration between laboratory and field research is crucial to the detection and identification, control and prevention of animal diseases.
  4. 4. CoA1: Understand disease constraints Herd-level models Disease dynamic TADs Endemic disease burden Socio-economic impact National level Disease dynamics TADs Socio-economic and environmental impact Global Emerging diseases Socio-economic and environmental impact Selected modelling factors: Production system changes: intensification, urbanization Climate change Combining/connecting disease and impact models at 3 levels Outputs: disease impact estimates (current and future scenarios), risk maps, models to evaluate efficacy and impact of potential interventions
  5. 5. CoA2: Herd health Community based approaches • Optimise production systems to close yield gap: control/prevent several diseases at once, improve animal welfare, promote responsible drug use, based on existing preventive and control tools • Develop innovative gender sensitive capacity development tools for farmers, DA/LEA, vets
  6. 6. Cluster 2/Herd health: Ethiopia • Ongoing intervention – Respiratory diseases and AM use (vaccination): PhD – Reproductive health (links with CBBP): PhD – Young stock mortality: PhD SLU (start 2019) – Coenurosis (deworming dogs) – GIT parasite control at community level – Community conversation on gender roles and norms, and zoonoses (SIF project): new modules on AMR and animal welfare – Trainings for vets and farmers (various topics) – Milk safety in Borana (LSIL project)
  7. 7. CoA3: Vaccines and diagnostics • Include other diseases • Push towards multi-valent and combination vaccines • Need for quick tests,
  8. 8. CoA4: Access to animal health services Aims to improved access to veterinary products and services in support of livestock production and to create business opportunities, incl. for youth and women • One Health approach for service delivery • Engage with private sector • PPR thermostable vaccine production • POC tests • Upscaling of delivery of ITM • Business models towards privatization of veterinary services • Bundling of services • Formalize roole of para-veterinarians • Out-grower models • Explore use of novel tools: smart phones, drones, etc
  9. 9. What we aim for Empower female and male animal health service providers (public and private vets and para-vets) – Promote health knowledge and integrated animal health solutions as a sellable product – New business models for animal health service delivery (PPPs) – New extension modes (ICT, privatize extension as advisory services) – Diagnostic platforms (onsite, multi-pathogen, affordable) – Vaccines: thermotolerant, multi-valent and combination vaccines
  10. 10. CGIAR Research Program on Livestock The CGIAR Research Program on Livestock aims to increase the productivity and profitability of livestock agri-food systems in sustainable ways, making meat, milk and eggs more available and affordable across the developing world.
