The article offers information on the new project researches from researchers that would deal with the impact of livestock diseases in developing countries. It states that the research project would look for solutions to reduce poverty, and to develop science applications to deal with the local diseases. It explores the investigatory projects of Sarah Cleaveland on the effect of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in Tanzania, and of Michael Baron on vaccine against peste des petits ruminants (PPR).
