A total of fifty researchers from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia benefited from meat inspection training (44) and laboratory diagnosis (6) to tackle parasitic pork borne diseases by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and German partners from the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) and the Free University of Berlin (FBU) in November and December 2018.
The training sessions developed the capacity of local partners in assessing pork to improve safety of pork in Vietnam.
The first training, on laboratory trichinellosis diagnosis, was held 26-30 November 2018 in Hanoi. It brought together six veterinarians from the three countries who are working on pig disease diagnosis.
