In rural communities where most smallholder farmers live, veterinary centres are often located many kilometers away, closer to the semi-urban areas. The result is that many smallholder farmers such as these ones from Mahua village in Nepal, do not always have reliable access to veterinary products for their livestock.

GALVmed is working with Hester Biosciences Ltd in south Asia to create more sustainable distribution centers of veterinary products so that smallholder farmers can have better access to livestock medicines and vaccines. Increased penetration of veterinary products will mean more economic benefit to the smallholder farmers.
