Together with our partners in Togo, we support cooperatives of smallholder farmers in their fight against animal diseases. Since September of this year, more than 30 of these cooperatives have benefited from the establishment of an animal health fund that allows them to finance the costs of vaccinations against small ruminant plague and Newcastle disease, as well as deworming. This should reduce the impact of these dangerous animal diseases on the already very limited income of Togolese smallholder farmers.

These activities are carried out thanks to financial contributions from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) within the framework of the Support Program for Livestock Marketing in West Africa (PACBAO).
