Community-based Animal Healthcare View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    Community based approaches to improving animal health have been evolving for many years. Numerous organisations and institutions, including government veterinary services, are now beginning to implement community-based animal health projects in order to provide basic veterinary services in rural areas. However, both governmental and non-governmental organisations can lack experience of community-based animal health systems and, to date, there are few publications available to guide them. This book is a how to do it manual covering all aspects of community-based animal health work. The book is designed for animal health professionals at field-level, though will also be relevant to policy makers, donors and veterinary training institutes. The book will draw on the experiences of community-based animal health projects implemented by government and NGOs during the last twenty years and will relate to on-going structural reform of veterinary services in developing countries. The book aims to provide practical guidance for the design and management of community-based animal health services and, in particular, will focus on issues related to sustainability and linkages between basic level workers, private veterinarians and state veterinary services.
