To promote and monitor the use of the technical and structural innovations developed in partnership at a regional and continental scale.Estimated results:1. Project coordinated and managed efficiently2. Improved protocols and tools to detect trypanocidal drug resistance and to determine trypanocidal drug quality available;3. Prevalence of trypanocide resistance and quality of trypanocidal drugs on local markets determined in three countries;4. Best-bet integrated strategies to improve effectiveness of trypanocides in livestock developed;5. Delivery systems to support the transfer of strategies implemented;6. Impact of intervention(s) on livelihoods of smallholders determined;7.
