Each module in this series forms the basic information required for training of community animal health workers selected by and based within their respective communities. The field manual is based on practical local knowledge with assistance from government departments, FAO and academic institutions. It has already been widely used as the basis of training programs for some 600 community animal health workers. Its publication has been made possible through the generous assistance of the Flemish International Cooperation Agency (FICA).
