Viet Nam: Partnership of Global Animal Health and Biosecurity Initiatives - Component 4, Capacity for Rabies Control in Viet Nam

The Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) through their Biosecurity Services Group and Office of the Australian Chief Veterinary Officer, is working with the FAO Animal Health and Production division to deliver projects that contribute to the global capacity to respond effectively to emergency animal diseases, strengthen disease intelligence gathering and analysis capacities, improve our knowledge of the relationship between livestock and wildlife, assist with rabies in Vietnam, and support the FAO reform process. One of the components of this collaboration (OSRO/GLO/102/AUL) seeks to build capacity for rabies control in Viet Nam. The general objective of this component is to build capacity for evidence-based management of rabies control in Viet Nam. A specific objective of the component is to develop base-line data on dog ecology, record current practices, attitudes and knowledge about potential threats to public health due to rabies in Viet Nam and consider options for a cost-effective control programme in animals as element of a strategic rabies control programme in Viet Nam. This investment in rabies control will provide useful lessons that can be applied to the management of other zoonotic diseases in the Asian region
