In one corner of Banke District in Nepal, Vishnu Rejme runs his agrovet stall. He is one of those community agroveterinary entrepreneurs – commonly known as agrovets – who are sustaining the system of poultry vaccination in remote parts of Nepal.
They form the vital ‘last mile’ connection to poultry farmers in the vaccine supply chain. Vishnu not only supplies and vaccinates chickens, but also helps to create awareness of the need for vaccination against the deadly Newcastle Disease.
The work being done by Vishnu and other agrovets was initiated by GALVmed and Heifer International.
