Animal Health and Production

Livestock plays an important role in the social, cultural and economic environment of Pacific Island communities. Indeed many, of the important social and cultural events in island life cannot be properly carried out without the slaughter and presentation of livestock in sufficient numbers. The Animal Health and Production thematic team works together in the Pacific region to develop prosperous, efficient and sustainable animal health and production systems, producing healthy animals and safe products for food security and income generation.

Pacific Animal Health Information System (PAHIS) Training

PAHIS database was developed in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organisation for the United Nations (FAO) in 1997. In order to update and correct bugs from that system, the PAHIS has been developed in collaboration with the Office International des Epizooties. It provides technical information on important animal diseases useful for risk analysis, diagnostic and understanding of diseases.  The Focus has been placed on improving accessibility of information to veterinary services of Pacific Island Countries and Territories and the system, on its full version, runs from CD-ROM.
