Embassy Abidjan and USAID facilitate training for veterinarians

Through the Global Health Security Agenda, the U.S. government advances partner countries’ capacity to prevent, detect, report, and treat zoonotic disease. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases, with USAID support, facilitated Côte d’Ivoire’s first “In Service Applied Veterinary Epidemiology Training,” July 11–17. A cohort of 24 officials from the Ivoirian government participated in the training.
