Livestock production is a major source of income, food for the Afghan farmers and their families. Improving livestock, poultry fish productions are the main source of income for the farmers and revenue for government from the export. In Afghanistan 70% living in rural areas and their livelihood depend upon on livestock production. Therefore, animal health directly impacts individual quality of live as well as national economy. PRB work in this area focuses on animal health, animal production, and animal systems. Sustainable livestock productivity growth leads to higher household incomes, empowers women, and improves year-round availability and accessibility of safe and nutritious animal-sourced food. Our approach to livestock development focuses on more effective engagement by global and regional technical entities, more progressive and effective national policies, and a more vibrant private sector that can deliver services and products at a more appropriate scale. PRB’s programs and projects are designed to address issues faced by marginalized livestock rearing communities, with focus on the needs of women from these communities.
