At GALVmed, we are working towards supporting catalystic initiatives that empower women through our poultry vaccination programmes. In the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, south of Agra, women in the local villages who have been vaccinating their poultry against a deadly poultry disease are beginning to experience a transformative change in their lives as participatory decision makers in their households and communities.

Newcastle Disease (ND) is a highly contagious and lethal disease that can kill between 80-90% of a flock during an outbreak. Often considered a natural disaster among rural poultry keepers, smallholders can now protect their chickens against the disease with a vaccine costing only US 3 cents a dose. Women are often the majority of poultry keepers; hence the vaccine has immensely benefited them.

The Madhya Pradesh vaccination project area is run by SAMPARK, a GALVmed partner. GALVmed works in four Indian states: Orissa, Jharkhand, Chatissgharh and Madhya Pradesh. SAMPARK has sold 1 million doses of the ND vaccine. The total Indian sales of the ND vaccine through GALVmed’s delivery partners is 50.5 million as of December 2016.

GALVmed is funded by the +GatesFoundation and +DFID - Department for International Development.
