Abstract IDEAL was a multi-disciplinary study addressing two main issues: 1) the widely recognised lack of baseline epidemiological data on the dynamics and impacts of infectious diseases of cattle in the tropics; and 2) improving understanding of interactions between multiple infections and their sequelae by testing two specific hypotheses: i) that the negative impacts of different infections are not independent; ii) that ‘positive’ traits (e.g. resistance to infection and/or disease, good condition etc.) cluster in certain individuals. This dataset contains links to data from all field activities - recruitment survey, longitudinal household and animal monitoring.
