HSP Continues To Support Afghanistan’s Veterinary Laboratories’ Biorisk Management Expansion By Holding A 4th Virtual Workshop

HSP will be holding a virtual workshop from April 24 to 29, 2021 with eight regional staff members and trainers from Afghanistan’s Central Veterinary and Diagnostic Research Laboratory (CVDRL). This workshop will take a more in-depth look at biorisk management.  

This training builds upon a previous virtual workshop that HSP held in January for Afghanistan’s regional veterinary labs. During the workshop, regional personnel will assess their laboratory using the FAO Biosafety and Biosecurity Tool, as well as the updated National Laboratory Biosafety Handbook, which includes standard operating procedures. Laboratory personnel will also discuss modifications to regional policies for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
