Innovation led to the I-2 vaccine
Over 10 years of research, pre-testing, and working supply-chain development- all with rigorous community consultation – has led to the many innovations for village chicken owners. Additionally, this decade of research and work helped development of a comprehensive set of tools for community led vaccination campaigns. Furthermore, it includes technician and farmer trainings on how to use the vaccine. We worked with communities in a local production of quality assured vaccine. And helped to supported their continued disease surveillance.
Through this model, we have the goal of achieving nearly 100% locally driven Newcastle disease control in communities. And improved village chicken husbandry and health. Which will lead to improved livelihoods and increased food security.
