CTTBD Product Development

Product Development

As we look forward to a more productive small-scale and large scale livestock sector in african region, CTTBD will increasingly incorporate work on a wider range of infectious diseases. Therefore, in addition to the original diseases, which were primarily Neglected Tropical Diseases, CTTBD will continue to consider the inclusion of projects on prevention, diagnosis, control and/or treatment of all infectious diseases that, based on refreshed evidence of needs, have the potential for benefitting smallholders.

Our intention is to make sure we develop vaccines that will meet the demand. Key components of the future strategy are to develop combination vaccines that may be appropriate for certain clinical syndromes and in our revised research programme to include platform technology assessment with partners in africa.
