The role which various small livestock play in the nutrition and economy of most families is an important one. In rural areas, many farmers unable to keep larger livestock regard sheep and goats as an investment - ready cash when money is needed for school fees or sickness. Smaller livestock - chickens, rabbits, etc - mean that hospitality is always available for visitors, and provide a supply of eggs and meat for the family, even though this is often only for special occasions.  

Improving production of small livestock will bring great benefits for the health of the whole family. We hope health workers can use some of these suggestions in their communities. Would a rabbit project, for example, be a useful addition to your community clinic?
