Description : In rural Afghanistan, healthy livestock can mean the difference between wealth and poverty. But keeping a herd healthy requires training and medicines. Last year, to help farmers look after this vital asset, the ICRC launched a pilot project to improve veterinary services in rural communities: this entailed supporting para-vets, organizing deworming campaigns for livestock, and training farmers in basic veterinary skills.
