The first WVEPAH “Poulets de chair I” course in French was held at EISMV in Dakar from 17 to 28 March 2014. Twenty-two vets specialized in poultry, coming from 9 French speaking sub-Saharan countries and the Maghreb, attended the course. The knowledge level of the participants was very high and homogenous. They could fully benefit from the Course Masters’ teachings and share their own experiences. These discussions are still continuing between alumni, current participants and Course Masters through the private WVEPAH Facebook group. The atmosphere is both very professional and warm.
