Ceva received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Since 2015, received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to train vets and boost dairy, poultry production and health in Bangladesh and Burkina Faso.
Ceva’s together beyond animal health focuses on working together to tackle the challenges of feeding the world, preventing zoonoses and strengthening the human-animal bond.
In pursuit of this goal, Ceva takes an interest in different forms of agriculture worldwide, ranging from the most highly-integrated, intensive farming systems to the more traditional forms that continue to dominate in many parts of the world.
Through a number of different projects, partnerships, and initiatives, Ceva strives to help develop local skills and support private and public sector players in animal health.
As part of this, Ceva has started working with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest philanthropic organization. The foundation is committed to helping all people lead healthy, productive lives and focuses on innovation and scaling solutions to problems that have a major impact on the lives of people in developing countries but get too little attention and funding.
In 2015, Ceva received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to roll out three targeted development projects corresponding to Ceva’s area of expertise and the foundation’s strategy to make smallholder livestock more productive, improve nutrition and empower women farmers. These projects include initiatives to boost health and production in the poultry and dairy sectors in Burkina Faso and Bangladesh over three years. Ceva is proud to be a beneficiary of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation which supports Ceva’s commitment to work together beyond animal health through feeding the world, tackling zoonoses and strengthening the human-animal bond.
