The project purpose was to provide new knowledge to policy makers, animal health workers and pastoralists to help them (1) better understand factors associated with variations in tickborne diseases (TBD) and ECF risk; (2) better assess and target ECF control measures, particularly vaccination; and (3) place their TBD and ECF control decisions in a broader pastoral risk management and pastoral livelihoods framework. This latter aspect is of great importance as disease control decisions are increasingly made under constrained access to grazing areas.
