Livestock play a central role in our work, both as a strategy for ending poverty and for achieving food security and proper nutrition. Livestock provide people food and nutrition, while also giving them tangible assets that can generate income, such as eggs or milk. Each country program has a tailored approach to animal health and husbandry, based on local resources and livestock.
