About this Publication:

A number of studies have demonstrated the clear beneficial impact that vaccinating against Newcastle disease (ND) can have on reducing the frequency and severity of ND outbreaks. Here we go one step further and analyse the additional benefits in terms of improved production that result from vaccination. This publication shows that vaccinating against ND has a clear beneficial impact on the productivity of the flock, and the livelihoods of smallholder farmers.
