Capacity building

SAFOSO, in close collaboration with FAO, implemented a Swiss-funded project in Serbia and Egypt with the aim of strengthening the governmental veterinary services and supporting industries in order to prepare them for the implementation of a comprehensive and needs-based prevention and control program for BSE. Knowledge was disseminated through a train-the-trainer approach. Key topics of the training courses were

  1. epidemiology, surveillance and risk assessment
  2. management of animal feed and feeding
  3. management of meat production and
  4. diagnostics.

The courses also included disease awareness, SPS compliance and risk communication. All courses offered a mix of theory, field visits, practical work and case studies.

The training courses were complemented by a set of course manuals, available here:
