Online FMD Investigation Training for the SAARC Region

Would you like to take part in innovative new training, networking with colleagues from around our region? Places now available for online training course on foot-and-mouth disease for the SAARC region.

The FAO-RSU-SAARC is partnering with the European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease to pilot the use of online training tools to promote transboundary animal disease control in the SAARC region.


As part of this initiative, places are available on a pilot online training course: the FMD Investigation Training course. This course will take place over a four week period, requiring participants to study for approximately 12 hours during this period. The course will cover foot-and-mouth disease pathogenesis, clinical diagnosis, lesion ageing, laboratory testing, outbreak investigation, biosecurity and the use of FMD vaccines. The course material includes live webinars, online discussion fora, interactive online modules and practical videos.

The course is suitable for veterinarians in the SAARC region who are working on activities related to FMD diagnosis and control at field, regional or central level. Participants should be able to communicate effectively in English language. More details on the course content are available here. All those who successfully complete the course will receive an electronic certificate.


A limited number of places are available and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Participation is free of charge. To apply please send an e-mail to eufmd-training@fao.org giving your name, surname, country of origin and current position within the veterinary services.
