Virtual training courses on transboundary animal diseases

The European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EuFMD) website hosts a platform offering a wide variety of online training courses that support the control of foot-and-mouth disease and similar transboundary animal diseases (FAST), including bovine ephemeral fever, lumpy skin disease, peste des petits ruminants, rift valley fever and sheep and goat pox. These also include open access online courses that can be taken anytime. See or contact [email protected] for more information. The EuFMD is an independent commission, established under the auspices of FAO in 1954, which currently has 39 Member Nations. Its work focuses on improving preparedness for management of FAST disease crises by Members and across Europe; reducing risk to Members from the FAST disease situation in the European neighbourhood; and sustaining and enhancing progress in the roll out of the Global Framework for Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs) Global Strategy for control of FMD, and on increasing security in the supply of effective FMD vaccines.
