Over the years, Ghana has held several engagements on public private partnerships (PPP) in veterinary domain but has not made concrete steps. This workshop offered the opportunity to make progress. The main objective of this activity was to get a final framework on the best public private partnership in line with WOAHs PPP concept to be implemented for Animal Health Delivery in Ghana.

Can flying animal vaccines in by drone to remote regions help address gender inequality? Find out on this special episode of The Boma! In this podcast, we hear about the barriers to digital technology and farming difficulties that women face, then follow how ILRI and the CGIAR are working to close that divide from the example of an innovative vaccine-delivery project in Ghana. We hear from Agnes Loriba, program lead and Ghana project manager at CARE International, Immaculate Omondi, a gender research economist at ILRI, and Nicoline de Haan, lead of the CGIAR GENDER Impact platform. How do they identify 'gender gaps' in farming and communities - and what does it take to close them? ItemAméliorer la fourniture de vaccins pour le bétail au Sénégal grâce à une intégration efficace de la dimension genre(2023) Toure, Alioune; Serra, Renata ItemIntegrating gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) in animal health delivery in Nepal (Nepali)(2023-03) Devkota, Kabita; Ludgate, Nargiza ItemIntegrating gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) in animal health delivery in Nepal (English)(2023-03) Devkota, Kabita; Ludgate, NargizaIn Nepal, women are often the primary caretakers of goats. However, they experience differentiated access to animal health services due to caste. Women from upper castes have better access to veterinary services, inputs, and information, enabled by their membership in goat cooperatives. Women from lower castes, on the other hand, have restricted membership in goat cooperatives and thus, less access to local animal health service providers and services. Consequently, they are less able to benefit from animal health campaigns or small livestock related business opportunities compared to upper caste women. A study by the University of Florida demonstrated the importance of integrating a Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) approach in animal health delivery to reach, benefit and empower women of lower castes and other marginalized goat-rearing communities to improve livestock productivity and health. ItemGender and social inclusion training for vet and animal health service providers(2023-02) Russo, Sandra L.; Baluka, Sylvia Angubua; Ludgate, NargizaIn Uganda, the majority of rural households are engaged in livestock rearing. Livestock is reared by both men and women, and in some pastoral communities, sick animals are left in the care of women while men take healthy animals for grazing. Research shows that gender and attitudes of animal health service providers can affect their veterinary practice and quality of care. Developing an understanding of how gender and perceptions of it can influence veterinary practices is essential to improve the reach and quality of service delivery. However, veterinarians, animal husbandry officers, and community animal health workers, referred to as animal health service providers in this brief, often receive limited and inconsistent training. Moreover, the training does not integrate gender responsive communication and entrepreneurship skills to help animal health service providers deliver gender equitable and inclusive services. ItemMaking vaccines available and accessible to women and other marginalized livestock farmers(2023-02) Yawe, Agnes; Russo, Sandra; Mugambe, Kenneth; Ludgate, Nargiza; Obin, GordonWhen women’s animals are not vaccinated, the animals pose a risk to spread of disease in the wider community. The LVIF study’s broad purpose was to understand the reasons that prevent the livestock and poultry of women and other marginalized groups from being vaccinated. By mapping the entire vaccine value chain of the PPR vaccine, the study noted two sites or nodes of action where applying a gendered intersectional analysis could lead to improved uptake of vaccinations for the animals of women and other marginalized groups regardless of their socio-cultural background, age, ethnicity, and geographic location. ItemGender-responsive and inclusive veterinary extension for healthy animals, reduced poverty and empowered women(2023-02) Ludgate, Nargiza; Obin, GordonThe study’s broad purpose was to understand the reasons why animal health workers overlook women in service delivery. In order to understand this, the study looked at the different identities and roles of women, not just as wives and mothers and farmers, but also as managers and owners of livestock. The study found that, it is common, in Karamoja, for women to own small ruminants and poultry, as well as be responsible for managing dairy cattle and other livestock in the home compound. However, the common perception among extension agents is that women do not own or manage livestock, that they are not strong enough to restrain an animal, and that only men can make decisions about livestock production, health, and business.
