African Swine Fever Introductory Course


The FAO Virtual Learning Centers have launched a new self-paced virtual learning course on African swine fever (ASF). The course aims to raise awareness of ASF and to develop capacity on its detection and prevention. 

This is an introductory course, designed for a range of stakeholders with an interest in ASF. It is intended to be useful for veterinarians, veterinary paraprofessionals and others working in the pig industries.

There are five short modules, each of approximately fifteen minutes duration. You can study these at a time and place to suit you, and use them as a ready-reference resource as needed. The course supports multiple platforms and can be studied on a smartphone, as well as on a computer or a tablet device.
