Title: The PARAVET Training Project


1
THE PARAVET TRAINING PROJECT Animal Health
and Production Land Resources Division
2
Project Background
  • Loss of production caused by livestock diseases
    and the risk of human being exposed to diseases
    carried by animals are major obstacles to
    development of livestock sector in the Pacific
    Island Countries.
  • The development of livestock sector has been
    complicated further by an acute shortage of
    qualified veterinarians and animal production
    specialists in the region.

3
Project Goals
  • To train livestock workers to enable an increase
    in animal productivity resulting in increased
    income generating opportunities by
  • Controlling or preventing diseases
  • Improving animal husbandry practices
  • Protect public health by reducing exposure to
    diseases carried by animals /or animal products

4
Project Goals contd
  • Increase awareness of the dangers if introduction
    of exotic diseases through training in disease
    recognition and surveillance
  • Protect the environment by promoting
    environmentally acceptable livestock farming
    systems
  • Facilitate trade development by helping satisfy
    WTO requirements for animal health information

5
The Demand for PARAVET
  • The need was first identified in 1951 when the
    development of regional approach to training
    animal health care specialists was recommended
  • PHALPS X re-emphasised the need for
    para-veterinary training and recommended that SPC
    develop such training programmes
  • The recommendation was endorsed by the 16th
    meeting of CRGA and the South Pacific Conference.
  • This recommendation was subsequently endorsed by
    PHALPS X111 and XIV the 28th Meeting of CRGA,
    which is indicative of full government support
    and also by later PHALPS. (Nadi, 2001)

6
The Demand for PARAVET contd
  • A training needs assessment was carried out in 13
    of the 22 member countries in 1998
  • A MOU between ADAP SPC and USP was signed in
    1999 in which the 3 institutions agreed to
    collaborate in the development of a
    Paraveterinary Training Programme to prevent
    duplication

7
PHALPS following guidelines for the development
of the course
  • Avoidance of residential courses
  • Maximum use of in country trainers
  • Maximum use of in-country facilities
  • Minimum disruption of work related activities

What is a Paravet?
The paravet is the eyes and ears of the
veterinarian at the community level. A paravet is
not a qualified veterinarian but he is
responsible for providing animal health care and
animal production advice to people in their
communities.
9
Target Goals
  • In the Pacific context, this training programme
    is designed for people who work with animals but
    have not had any formal training in animal health
    or animal production This programme is intended
    in particular for extension officers involved in
    providing services to farmers in the field.

10
What will a Paravet do?
  • Recognize signs of disease in animals
  • Treat sick animals
  • Advise farmers on correct livestock management
    practices
  • Ensure that animals are slaughtered in a hygienic
    and humane way

11
What will a Paravet do? Contd
  • treat those sick animals that he can, given the
    resources available to him and refer sick animals
    to the nearest veterinarian if he is unable to
    treat them
  • provide advice to members of the community on
    animal production and health issues.
  • visit farmers and advise members of his community
    on how to improve animal productivity
  • carry out surveillance for the introduction of
    exotic diseases
