Vo Ngan Giang, David Payne
USAID Local Capacity Building Summit


June 20, 2012

The USAID Avian and Pandemic Influenza Initiative aims to strengthen the capacity of the Government of Vietnam and its counterparts to identify, prevent, and control outbreaks of avian influenza and other emerging infectious and zoonotic diseases in animals and humans. The project’s intervention to build the capacity of local animal health networks in Quang Tri province is three-fold: 1) improving the knowledge, skills and practices of local animal health workers, 2) building the capacity of civil society to address animal health, and 3) improving community-level inputs into national infectious disease surveillance.
