A 3-day training workshop programme was conducted by Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicine (GALVmed) in partnership with MART in August 2016 in New Delhi.
The main objective of the event was to strengthen capacity of the GALVmed partners operating in the target area towards developing new marketing channels and linkages to systematize the supply and distribution channels of livestock and poultry vaccines in different states in India and Nepal and to meet the need of the communities where the vaccine is still unavailable.
The training workshop was designed by MART after conducting training need assessment of GALVmed partners in India and Nepal. A team of 12 members attended the programme from different parts of India, including - Odisha, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and from Nepal as well as GALVmed team. The event was also attended by Hester Biosciences Limited, a big livestock and poultry vaccine manufacturer and distributor in India. GALVmed is currently partnering with Hester in the setting up of a supply and distribution system of their thermo-tolerant Newcastle Disease vaccine in 3 states in India.
