Under the feed and health intervention study for improved small ruminant production in 2 intervention communities in Koutiala district of Mali, data has been collected on animal performance (average daily gain, flock dynamics), manure production, and cost and benefit which covers the productivity, environmental and economic domains of the sustainable intensification assessment framework. Necessary data has not been collected for the human and social domains regarding this feed-health intervention. The objective of this study was to collect data on the human and social domains so that sustainable intensification assessment framework can be applied to the feed and health intervention for improved small ruminant production. The same households in the 2 communities, forty in total, involved in the feed-health intervention study conducted between 2017 and 2018 were involved in the survey.
