Follow-up Training on Outbreak Investigation in Mongolia
In April 2018, the training of trainers on outbreak investigation was followed-up with two times one week of supervision. Animal Health Works participated in real-time outbreak investigation trainings in Khenti (East) and Orkhon (Central) for Aimag and Soum veterinarians. The trainers were monitored and evaluated daily while additional suggestions were made to safeguard that training was fully adapted to the Mongolian situation.
The training included two days of field work both sampling for FMD virus and conducting a questionnaire to understand risk factors for FMD transmission. Based on job-aids made available during previous training a nice number of posters in Mongolian language were developed and supported by Mercy Corps.
