Bacteriophage-based solutions to kill salmonella strains isolated from poultry farms in Kenya (co-led by ILRI)
International Livestock Research Institute and University of Laval (Canada) expect to develop a phage delivery system to improve protection against Salmonella strains isolated from Kenyan poultry farms. The 33 month project received a total funding of CA$ 2,909,200 from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) funds. In Kenya, poultry farming represent about 30% of the total agricultural contribution to GDP. Infectious disease associated with poultry farming and egg production pose a high health risk to farmers and consumers and currently Salmonella infections in these farms are controlled using antibiotics.
