In sub-Saharan Africa, 75% of households practice small-scale farming, and 80% of these keep livestock as a primary means of economic livelihood. When these animals get sick, it requires a family’s time, effort and monetary resources to make them well again. Come join Dr. Tom Marsh, Distinguished Professor at Washington State University, as he explores the economics behind why livestock vaccinations allow families to send more young women to secondary school.
