In 2021, GALVmed and Ceva Santé Animale launched PREVENT (PRomoting and Enabling Vaccination Efficiently, Now and Tomorrow), a 4-year initiative that aims to improve the efficiency and sustainability of small-scale poultry production in Sub-Saharan Africa.
One of the key objectives of this project is not only to boost poultry productivity but to bring a pragmatic level of understanding of gender dynamics within the poultry sector with the goal of positively impacting women chicken producers. To better serve this purpose, and to understand the gender consequences of poultry intensification, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), in collaboration with GALVmed, recently carried out a rapid gender landscaping analysis in Tanzania, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe. This landscaping analysis was designed to inform the gender context underpinning the PREVENT project in these countries, and raises interesting questions for the PREVENT initiative. GALVmed will be using these findings to understand, track, and communicate the gendered effects of the project.
