Reducing Health Risks Related to Commercial Farming of Wild Animals in Viet Nam
Standardised and specific regulations for wildlife farms in preventing zoonotic disease emergence and spillover in Viet Nam were presented and verified at the consultation workshop organised by the One Health Partnership (OHP) Secretariat and GIZ on April 14, 2023.
These proposals are part of the studies conducted in 2022 by the project “Reducing health risks in the wild animal trade in Viet Nam” in eight provinces. They identified the gaps in the existing policy system, as well as factors determining the adoption of prevention and control measures on zoonotic emergence and spillover risks in wildlife farms.
Discussion results from the workshop will be considered when developing a new decree regulating wildlife farm management and will also contribute to the implementation of the Master Plan for the OHP Framework for Zoonoses, 2021 – 2025.
