From May 21 to June 4,1993, a collaborative training project involving U.S. Army veterinary personnel, the Lao-American Integrated Rural Development Project, and the Lao Department of Livestock and Veterinary Services occurred in the Houa Muang District of Houa Phan Province in northeastern Laos.
The project focus was control of the major animal diseases of economic or public health importance in the area to include, but not limited to, hemorrhagic septicemia, anthrax, sine fever (hog cholera), and Newcastle disease.
The project provided Lao veterinary personnel and villagers with didactic training and field demonstrations in disease control practices.
Supplies and equipment necessary to continue disease control activities were provided to the district at the conclusion of the training and field demonstrations.
The project was designed to be compatible with disease reporting and surveillance systems at district, province, and national levels and be exportable to other districts and provinces.
In addition to disease-control efforts, blood and fecal parasite surveys were conducted.
