Dong Thap, Vietnam, 26-27 July 2018

Two researchers from the National Institute of Veterinary Research (NIVR, Hanoi) Dr. Đặng Thị Thanh Sơn and her PhD student Mr. Nguyễn Văn Phương worked with ViParc researchers and veterinarians for two days (26-27th July 2018). Dr. Sơn and Mr. Phương visited three ViParc chicken farms in Dong Thap. Mr. Nguyễn Văn Cường, ViParc project coordinator, and ViParc info-vets provided background about ViParc study design, and shared their experiences on data collection and other aspects of the project. Lessons from ViParc may prove useful to develop data collection tools for the VIDA-PIG project, a new research initiative funded by the Danish Government (DANIDA) to reduce antimicrobials in pig production in northern Vietnam.
