ProgRESSVet Vietnam

ProgRESSVet-Vietnam is an educational initiative focused on the control and prevention of African swine fever (ASF), developed for the veterinary services of Vietnam with funding from the Swine Health Information Center. 

In 2021 participants from Vietnam’s Department of Animal Health (DAH) completed coursework in the following areas:

  • African Swine Fever Epidemiology and Risk Assessment
  • Biosecurity and ASFv Risk Management in Pig Farms
  • Organization of Control Plans at the Central Level 

In 2022, participants will take methods-focused courses as staff continue advancing their strategies to fight ASF and other animal diseases:

  • Introduction to Spatial Analysis
  • Introduction to Disease Modeling
  • Introduction to Economic Analysis 

ProgRESSVet is offered via eBooks.  This approach allows participants to work through topics and themes in a self-paced manner. The eBooks are supplemented with interactive webinars with DAH, CAHFS staff, and global experts presenting and discussing efforts to control ASF.
