Special Recognition Award $500

University of Pretoria, South Africa

Our aim for the day was to inform farmers, Animal Health Technicians (Veterinary Services) and Environmental Health Practitioners (Public Health) on 8 selected zoonotic diseases that they might encounter on farms.

The diseases were: Rabies, Brucellosis, Tuberculosis, Rift Valley Fever, Anthrax, West Nile Virus, Cysticercosis & Leptospirosis. The information was presented in the form of a drama that focused on a visit to a farm by a 'One Health Team' to address a situation of people on the farm testing positive for a zoonotic disease. Every person from the audience was presented with an information pack consisting of pamphlets and posters of each zoonotic disease. Mugs with different designs for the selected zoonotic diseases were given away as prizes and were also available for purchase. Snacks and beverages were provided. Transportation was provided for selected rural farmers.
