SIDA invites application from qualified candidates to participate in the upcoming international training program. SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) is a government agency working on behalf of the Swedish parliament and government, with the mission to reduce poverty in the world.
This International Training Programme is specially designed for persons qualified to participate in reform processes of importance on different levels and holding a position in the home organisation with mandate to run processes of change. It offers support to strengthen, adapt and maintain capacity over time in order for your organisation to define and achieve goals in both the short and long term.
The overall objective of this programme is to reduce poverty and vulnerability among smallholder farmers. More specifically, the programme will address how better health in food producing animals improve sustainable production of animal derived products, and how this interrelates to reduced usage of antimicrobials and safer food products.
The main objectives are to: improve animal health; reduce the number of zoonotic infections in humans; decrease the development of antimicrobial resistance; and reduce the presence of antibiotics in food.
