Gender discrimination is a well-known cause of povert. it is well recognised that any intervention directed at poverty reduction must take gender seriously. GALVmed is committed to poverty reduction through engagement with marginalised male and female farmers, herders, and livestock keepers in developing countries. GALVmed’s commitment to poverty reduction through promoting adoption of livestock health products is enhanced through deliberate empowerment of women and other marginalised groups. This document sets out how this Gender policy shall apply to GALVmed’s activities as appropriate.
