GALVmed also placed a message in the congress programme, which reads:

700 million of the world’s poorest people rely on livestock for their survival. But livestock diseases and diseases transmitted from animals to people devastate the lives of individuals, families and communities around the world. For people with few alternatives, healthy livestock mean survival, school, clothing, trade and the dignity of choice and self-determination. GALVmed (Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicines) is making livestock vaccines, diagnostics and medicines accessible and affordable to the millions for whom livestock is a lifeline. GALVmed is a not for profit global alliance funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation & the UK Government’s Department for International Development. 

If you are at the Melbourne Convention Centre you can find the GALVmed exhibit in booth 8 and meet up with CEO Steve SloanDr Hameed Nuru (Senior Director: Policy & External Affairs) and Dr Lois Muraguri (Assistant Director: Policy & External Affairs).
