The project will evaluate and provide a model for sustainable VPPs in which competency acquisition is a gateway to recognition and increases access to new business opportunities in the “last mile” delivery of 15 quality-assured animal health services. This will be accomplished by a competency-based training system, in line with OIE Guidelines, allied to a digital engagement strategy supporting recognition and business development in the animal health care services marketplace. Through its worldwide network, the WVA will assist in the project through positive interactions between its memberships and the VPPs representatives in countries in Africa and Asia, helping to shape the design of the national VPP development from a frequently competitive one into a collaborative one. The WVA will support the training and VPP business support activities through its access to a range of expertise. The project duration is 36 months.
