This abstract is based on a full-length paper written by Jemimah Njuki and Beth Miller in 2012.
This paper first reviews gender issues at the intersection of livestock production, human health and nutrition, development of private sector businesses and policy. It goes on to make a series of recommendations for the integration of gender equality goals throughout the livestock value chain.
