The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded the Feed the Future Innovation Lab (i-Lab) for Livestock Systems and other i-Labs to conduct research on the causes, impacts, costs, prevention and mitigation of livestock diseases in selected Asian and African countries. These data will be shared to allow systematic estimation of the global burden of animal diseases to drive evidence-based resource allocation. This work will provide much-needed data to support animal health interventions for some of the poorest livestock producers.
