With the aim of reducing unnecessary antibiotic use in animal production while promoting prudent use in order to limit the growth of resistant bacteria both in humans and animals, and in collaboration with the Sub-Department of Animal Health of Dong Thap province (SDAH-DT), ViParc organized a second training course (‘Roadshow 2’) targeting veterinary drug shops throughout the province. The training took place on 3 different days: December 12th, December 18th and December 19th, 2020 at three locations including Sa Dec city, Hong Ngu city and Cao Lanh city. A total of 179 attendees from different veterinary drug shops across the province joined in this event. In addition, there were representatives from the Center for Disease Control in Dong Thap province (CDC-DT) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Vietnam.

To develop the program for this Roadshow, ViParc invited experts in veterinary pharmacology and infectious diseases from Nong Lam University (HCMC) as well as one senior veterinarian from SDAH-DT. The Roadshow included presentations on the following topics (1) ‘Principles of antibiotic use in animals’; (2) ‘Newcastle Disease and Chronic Respiratory Disease in chickens’; (3) ‘Calculating antibiotic doses in livestock’; and (4) ‘Decree No. 90/2017/ND-CP (Regulations and administrative violations within the veterinary sector).
