In Uganda alone, the annual loss caused by tick-related animal complications amounts to US$1.1 billion, with the East Coast Fever being the most prevalent and economically bruising tick-borne disease (TBD).

The Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicines (GALVmed) has partnered with Elanco Animal Health, a global leader in animal health, to launch a new initiative to manage ticks and tick-borne diseases in Africa.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supports the initiative.
