Institute of Pig Chain and the French Ministry of Agriculture share tools for auditing and controlling biosecurity in livestock farming

Two French experts from the Institute of Pig Chain (IFIP) and the Ministry of Agriculture led a technical seminar on biosecurity control measures (current practices, level of requirements for audits, self-checks and official controls).

The workshop was organised as a public-private partnership and brought together a wide range of Filipino stakeholders: veterinary services from the Ministry of Agriculture (Bureau of Animal Industry), Local Government veterinary services and private veterinarians (College of swine practitioners). 

It provided an opportunity for French and Filipino experts to compare points of view and share their respective experiences, as the two countries have set up prevention and control programmes in very different epidemiological contexts (the disease has been rife in the Philippines since 2019, while France, which is free of ASF, is implementing a prevention policy).

Next steps:

The results of this seminar, together with those of the studies conducted in parallel by CIRAD, will be used to adjust the content of the biosafety training courses to be rolled out by ENSV-FVI and IFIP in the Philippines in 2024.

An equivalent workshop is planned for October 2023 in Hanoi, also bringing together multidisciplinary teams from Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
