Web-based Communications with Iraq Veterinarians
USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), in collaboration with USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and Colorado State University, provides technical assistance to strengthen Iraq's national animal health and disease control program.
As part of a cooperative agreement with FAS, APHI has initiated web-based communication with veterinarians in Iraq — http://veterinaryknowledge.mam9.com/forum.htm
The website is mainly in the Arabic language to facilitate communication with Iraqi veterinarians. The aim of this communication is to build the awareness of the essential components for sound Iraqi Animal Health and Food Safety Programs particularly among the field users of these programs.
Dr. Hanaa Thigeel, a graduate student at Colorado State University, is the coordinator of this website.
