This project successfully tested the efficacy of a dual vaccine against rinderpest and lumpy skin disease (LSD) in cattle. The level of full proection was 100% at one month post vaccination but thereafter declined to 50% at 24 months. The project demonstrates clear progress towards the goal of improving health status of farm livestock owned by poor livestock keepers in East Africa, but further research is still needed as vaccine development is a very long process.
