Following recent outbreaks in a number of countries across Asia, the EuFMD has made available a new ‘taster’ training module on lumpy skin disease (LSD) in cattle. The availability of such high quality training courses is invaluable to help stop the spread of this serious disease which damages the health and welfare of cattle, as well as the livelihoods of those that depend on them.
Excerpt from EuFMD website:
This short, self-directed, online module has been made available to support animal health practitioners in those countries in the Asia and Pacific region which are currently affected by, or at risk of lumpy skin disease (LSD).
These activities are organized by EuFMD and the FAO Virtual Learning Centre for Asia and the Pacific, working with the World Organisation for Animal Health ( OIE), Regional Representation for Asia and the Pacific. The LSD Preparedness Course was developed under a partnership between EuFMD, the FAO Regional Office for Europe and the Friedrich-Loeffler Institut.
