"Maternal and new-born MDGs 4 and 5 will likely not be met in Africa despite the availability of evidence-based, affordable and appropriate technical interventions. Obstacles persist on both the demand side (low utilization) and supply side (low quality and lack of services), across the continuum of care from pregnancy to postnatal care. Priority must now be given to finding the mechanisms to brid ...

NEXTGEN proposes the bold step of using whole genome data to develop and optimise conservation genetic management of livestock diversity for the foreseeable future. The rationale for choosing whole genome data is to ‘future-proof’ DNA-based analysis in livestock conservation against upcoming changes in technology and analysis. Thus, in the context of whole genome data availability, our global obje ...
