Poultry production is economically important Worldwide and it’s a cornerstone for the improvement of livelihood of populations in developing countries. It has been a feature of human society for several years and it’s the most feasible and sustainable of all meat and protein production systems. Poultry plays an important role in the livelihood of rural communities in developing countries.

To make poultry production projects viable there is a need to have a strong effort of education and training in poultry sector. Several reports shows that the level of productivity in many developing countries is so poor that it is not viable and capable of feeding an increasing urbanized population. Hence, there is a need for all stakeholders for active participation in strengthening and improving the knowledge in the development of poultry industry.

The World Veterinary Education in Production Animal Health (WVEPAH) is a fully independent non-profit organization developing poultry veterinary courses in many countries in English, French and Spanish. WVEPAH training program aims at improving the practical skills of poultry veterinarians.

Due to the global health situation and travel restrictions, the organization has rebranded her training courses to be an online live session from June 1st to October 29th, 2021 with the same quality of certificate issued to participants now at a cheaper fee. This certificate qualifies successful participant to become an international poultry consultant acceptable all over the World because of OIE verification.

Livestock Industry Foundation for Africa (LIFA) started to partner with WVEPAH since last year when the first training courses started at Nairobi, Kenya.

The training for this session will be an overview of important infectious and non-infectious diseases at different stages of the egg layer’s productions process. Participants will be trained to work up and solve common problems. The course will lay the foundation for more in-depth studies on specific subjects covered in follow up courses.

The course will be held in English Language by a team of World class course masters. The students will be provided 8 – 10 hours block of pre-recorded lessons followed by a 2 hours session with the teachers via Zoom.

The courses are open to students of all nationalities and not restricted to a geographical area. The course is in full support of the OIE (World Organization for Animal Health). The constant concern for the WVEPAH is to offer participants the best training at the best cost.
