Vietnam embraces animal welfare

Last week the JMICAWE team were delighted to collaborate with Animals Asia and the Hanoi University of Agriculture to deliver a workshop on ‘Strengthening the Global Veterinary profession through integrating Animal welfare Education’, 44 participants from seven Vietnamese Universities attended, in addition to five Animals Asia Staff.

The workshop ran over 3 days, utilising a range of theoretical and practical activities to demonstrate interactive teaching and learning. Animal welfare is perceived to be of importance in the Vietnamese veterinary curriculum as it is part of the OIE Day One Competencies for Veterinary Education. However it is not yet integrated into core teaching.

Dr Phai of Hanoi University of Agriculture commented “Thank you very much to all of you for providing us a really useful course and materials. We will try our best to adopt what you taught us to improve the current animal welfare in our institution.”

Heather Bacon of the JMICAWE said “It’s fantastic to see the Hanoi University of Agriculture leading the way  in supporting the integration of animal welfare into veterinary teaching and recognising that its integration throughout the curriculum is important
