AgriFoSe2030 Theme 4 "Livestock-keeping among smallholders for a nutritious diet and increased food security" aims to fight nutrient deficiency by increasing productivity in animal production, find mechanisms to facilitate inclusion of poor smallholders in markets to ensure profitable sale of their products and develop animal production systems and markets that benefit women and young people.
Collaborative literature review will facilitate management of livestock diseases in Vietnam
AgriFoSe2030 supports a systematic review of literature about livestock diseases in Vietnam. The goal is to facilitate efficient control measures. The work with the literature review started in the last week of March when Dr Elisabeth Lindahl Rajala and Professor Ulf Magnusson visited Hanoi Agricultural University.
Improved animal health is an important mean for more efficient use of natural resources like water and feed – i.e. a critical element in sustainable intensification. Equally important, reducing the disease burden by preventive animal health measures increase food security/nutrition and income for farmers.
The livestock oriented theme in AgriFoSe2030 (Theme 4) support a systematic review of literature about livestock diseases in Vietnam aiming to facilitate prioritization of controlling animal diseases based on prevalence, impact and cost-efficiency of control measures and other aspects.
The work is led by Dr. Elisabeth Lindahl-Rajala, Dep Clinical Sciences, SLU and includes partners from International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Hanoi and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Hanoi Agricultural University. The last week of March, Dr. Lindahl-Rajala and Professor Magnusson visited Hanoi to start the work on the systematic review.
