Livestock, Livelihoods and Health
5 November 2015
IFR’s Dr Gary Barker is a partner in Livestock, Livelihoods and Health, a collaborative research programme focused on livestock diseases, and how they affect the people of Tanzania. Livestock management is vital to many in Tanzania, but is facing challenges such as urbanisation, climate change and a growing demand for more meat and milk. All of these also change how zoonoses affect animals and people, and understanding this needs a multidisciplinary approach, which is the basis of the Livestock, Livelihoods and Health project.
