In many developing countries access to veterinary services is a particular problem in rural areas, and poor farmers suffer significant losses of production due to preventable livestock diseases. "Village Animal Healthcare" describes three pilot projects which ITDG's livestock programme has undertaken in Kenya since 1986. Building on local knowledge farmers have been trained in common diseases and basic treatment techniques, and are then able to provide a simple animal health service for their communities. It provides an assessment of the technical aspects of the programme and its effectiveness in terms of community development and outreach. It will thus be of interest both to animal healthcare practitioners and to those involved in wider aspects of community development.
