Join us for a webinar sharing lessons from IDRC's Livestock Vaccine Innovations Fund (LVIF) projects​. The LVIF supports the development of affordable livestock vaccines, targeting diseases that impact women and men livestock smallholders and facilitating their access and use at scale.

A set of four participatory action research projects within LVIF are addressing barriers faced by women in livestock vaccine systems across six countries and generating new evidence on how they can better benefit and participate in these systems.

Come and hear more about how these projects worked to empower  women, what data and evidence they collected, and what they learned!
