Research in tropical animal health

Deadline: 31/08/2001
May 18, 2001

Applications are invited for funding of research from April 2002 in the field of tropical animal health through the Department for International Development Rural Livelihoods Department’s Animal Health Programme (AHP).

AHP research must target appropriate groups of livestock keepers and livestock species for whom the programme can have specific relevance.

Appropriate groups: moderately poor people owning/managing small numbers of livestock; displaced people for whom livestock are an important component of livelihood.

Appropriate livestock species: small stock as part of a network of income generating activities; larger stock, cattle and camels where they underpin livelihoods of poorer people.

Four inter-related thematic areas of research will address animal health problems of these target groups: point of care diagnostics and decision support systems; human health impacts of animal diseases: zoonoses; dissemination and delivery of animal health knowledge; vaccine development.

Preference will be given to proposals that are important to the livelihoods of poor people in countries in East, Central and Southern Africa or South Asia.
