A new 3-minute video presents an overview of the work that the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is doing towards the prevention and control of agriculture-associated diseases.

This is one of the key themes of the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health, which is led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).

This CGIAR Research Program was started in 2012 to investigate the links between agriculture, nutrition and health in poor nations.

The program aims at improving the nutritional and health benefits of the farming sector while mitigating the risks posed by diseases that are spread through food and water, as well as those that can be passed from animals to people (zoonotic diseases).

In addition to a focus on agriculture-associated diseases, it also carries out research on food value chains, biofortification, and integrated development policies and programs on agriculture, nutrition and health.
