Offered in partnership with the Department of Agriculture Bureau of Animal Industry, Philippine College of Swine Practitioners, and International Training Center on Pig Husbandry, ProgRESSVet Philippines is composed of online courses and support for the development of a practical project that will provide participants with knowledge and skills to effectively contribute to national efforts to mitigate ASF and its impacts.
The overall purpose of ProgRESSVet Philippines is to strengthen local veterinary services capacities to detect and control animal disease, and to understand and apply international standards for trade of animal products. The curriculum will focus on the control and surveillance of diseases related to hemorrhagic fevers in swine, specifically African Swine Fever (ASF).
ProgRESSVet Philippines and ProgRESSVet Vietnam will be jointly offered as a regional program to help address the ever growing concern of ASF. The combination of these two programs will be appointed the title of ProgRESSVet Southeast Asia.
The program training will officially begin on 20 March, 2023. Currently we are accepting applications for participants from the Philippines. If you are interested please contact [email protected].
