19,900 poultry vaccinators across Bangladesh stand as gate-keepers protecting poultry rearers from diseases today. Through a 20 year old Government-NGO cooperation, Bangladesh has transformed its operations from centralized service delivery to a decentralized model that reaches vaccination services, promotional messages and disease surveillance to poultry rearers in the remotest areas of the country. The cost of being Disease protected is just 1 Taka, but it brings with it better income, nutrition, employment and empowerment. Poultry vaccinators are chartering the new course for pro-poor service delivery. This note captures the development of this innovative model and its impact on the country's poultry landscape!
