Addressing animal health knowledge gaps in Southern countries

Livestock are a key asset for the global poor. However, access to relevant information is a critical issue for both livestock development practitioners and the poor themselves. This paper (in the Electronic Journal of Information Systems in Developing Countries) details the creation of an on-line Animal Health Resource Room.

The Animal Health Resource Room was created to deliver learning media i.e. videos and pamphlets to practitioners working with poor communities in Bolivia and India. Prior to developing the resource room, a study was undertaken to explore the priority animal health constraints identified by poor farmers in India and Bolivia.

Dairy production is an important component of rural development in India to improve the livelihoods of farmers. There are many problems faced by Indian farmers. Scarcity of feed, the non-availability services in time, access to capital and market are the main factors for low productivity of diary animals. This Animal Health Resource Room will definitely help poor farmers in India to overcome these constraints
