Since 2014, the ENSV-FVI’s International Actions Service has been organizing annual summer schools – the ENSV-FVI Summer courses – for experienced foreign official veterinarians.
On Wednesday 2 June, the 7th edition of the ENSV-FVI Summer Courses began, focusing on the fundamental issue of « Quality of Veterinary Services« . 11 official veterinarians from 11 different countries (Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Middle East) will participate in the training webinars scheduled until June 30. The programme will include various exchange sessions aimed at understanding the critical points affecting the quality of Veterinary Services, as well as the tools and levers to be mobilised for their continuous improvement. The training will cover a wide range of Veterinary Services activities, from setting up an effective epidemiosurveillance network to managing a major epizootic disease, or strengthening public-private partnerships in veterinary public health. Professionals from various backgrounds, working both at international and local level (OIE experts, representatives of the DGAL in Paris, decentralised services, CIRAD, etc.), will be invited to speak and share their expertise on the subject. The seminar is planned in a 100% remote format, which is a nice revenge for this summer course that had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and confirms the shift taken by ENSV-FVI to adapt its systems to the current health context.
