To make a step change in the research evidence available to inform decision makers on how to minimise the health risks associated with the rapidly changing nature of livestock systems in developing countries, focusing on those risks which impact on the livelihoods and health of poor people.
- To reduce the impact of zoonoses on poor people and their livestock. The initiative recognises that priorities for endemic, new and/or (re)-emerging zoonotic diseases may vary from region to region. It will address the problem of zoonoses by generating high quality research in technical and policy areas
- To forge mutually-beneficial inter- and multi-disciplinary partnerships between researchers in the UK and developing countries that create trans-national added value through meaningful intellectual collaboration, and enhance the scientific capabilities of southern partners for the longer term
