The European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD)

Workshops

EuFMD organizes a variety of workshops aimed at both FMD free and non-free countries. The objectives are to train veterinarians from EuFMD Member State and non-EuFMD states in Europe (EU members or western Balkan countries) in the skills required to undertake clinical and epidemiological inquiries of suspected FMD cases; to establish a network of veterinarians in Europe and the neighbourhood.

What are the main objectives of the workshops?

Active participation in the workshops can contribute to improving  training materials, share best practices and improve the contingency planning for FMD, and contribute to the wider debate on FMD control policies; and to develop a bank of online resources that will assist the MS, and any interested party, in training of veterinary staff in FMD diagnostic and investigation procedures, and which will assist to validate/review new diagnostic procedures that become available during the training.
