The second part of One Health (OH) Training of Trainers (ToT) organized in Ethiopia is successfully concluded on May 13, 2023. A total of 26 participants drawn from government sector offices serving in the One Health Task Force (OHTF) of four target districts and the three consortium partners operating in Ethiopia (VSF-Suisse, Amref Health Africa and ILRI) attended the six days training (May 8 – 13, 2023). As part of a way forward, the three HEAL Field Offices (Borana, Moyale and Filtu) drafted indicative work plans to cascade the training to One Health Unit (OHU) staff and OHTF members that did not attend this training. The two rounds of the ToT were facilitated by two senior scientists (Dr. Siobhan Mor | HEAL Lead at ILRI | a reader in OH at University of Liverpool and Dr. Mamusha Lemma, capacity building specialist | ILRI). The Regional Heal team, on behalf of the HEAL consortium would like to extend its gratitude to Dr. Siobhan and Dr. Mamusha for their outstanding contribution in the development of the training manuals and facilitators’ guide as well as for delivering the training in two rounds both in Nairobi and Ethiopia.
