The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded three veterinary colleges a grant for a two-year project to improve veterinary services in developing nations by advancing educational opportunities.
The project includes the CFSPH, the College of Veterinary Medicine and College of Public Health at The Ohio State University, and the School of Veterinary Science and Institute of Education at Massey University in New Zealand.
The project will involve the continued collaboration with the College of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences at the University of Gondar , and the Royal University of Agriculture Faculty of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine in Cambodia.
The resources on the platform will focus on management of herd health, epidemiology of infectious diseases, emerging diseases and disease management, outbreak investigation, bio-security, products, nutrition, and animal welfare. The tools will be available for testing by the partner institutions in 2020.
