MENTORING IN LAOS IS IN FULL SWING

With the dry season now in full swing, Veterinarian Anne Drew is again working with Primary Animal Health workers (PAHWs) to improve animal healthcare in Xaythany District. After playing a key role in a vaccination campaign against Haemorrhagic septicaemia (HS) at the end of last year, encouraging more farmers than before to vaccinate their cattle, the PAHWs are more motivated than ever to continue providing healthcare serivces. However, they still need a lot of training and support to learn about better disease prevention, treatment and livestock management.

Here Anne and Lampheuy discuss bloat treatments for cattle with the PAHWs in Senoudom village.
