  1. Dear SEAPREID,
    I am working for a South Asia regional project implemented by FAO as the Regional Epidemiology Centre Coordinator to build capacities and networking in epi in the region. We are exploring to conduct a week long training in PE focusing on disease surveillance and monitoring for the relevant focal vets from the 8 Member States, tentatively during late January 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal for around 16 trainees. We are looking for a PE expert to deliver the actual course. I am contacting your network to find a suitable and affordable expert for the same. All logistics and some other technical support will be provided by the project staff.
    Please feel free to contact me for further information.
