In an effort to strengthen the capacities of surveillance and control activities in Member States, IICA has collaborated with the Ohio State University (OSU) College of Veterinary Medicine, to offer advanced training on antibiotic use and antimicrobial resistance in food production animals and food products of animal origin.
This capacity building action on Antimicrobial Use and Antimicrobial Resistance in Agriculture, is an opportunity for early to mid-career public health professionals to participate in a comprehensive two week training course designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to control and monitor the emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in food production systems, as well as throughout the food chain from the farm to the consumer.
Opportunity exists for 2 qualified persons working on aquaculture/fisheries SPS from the Caribbean ACP States to participate in the training course.
For more information on the course please download the Course profile here and/or contact the CRFM Secretariat, or the Director of Fisheries/Chief Fisheries Officer or Permanent Secretary Responsible for Fisheries in your country for more information.
This training is made possible through funding under the EU Funded SPS Measures Project.
