Stopping Avian Influenza in GhanaRATIONALE
Winrock is a sub to DAI on the STOP AI Task Order under RAISE Plus. DAI will conduct a cascade training strategy to strengthen AI surveillance, biosecurity, and response capacity in Ghana. Under this strategy, STOP AI will conduct a 10-day course for 20 Master trainers and then co-facilitate three Zonal-level courses with selected master trainers. These courses, build on the previous training already conducted by USAID in commodities and surveillance, delivered by consultant Dr. Andrea Miles between May and September 2007. A total of 14 trainings on avian influenza and the use of USAID AI Commodities for participants from GVS and other audiences were delivered.
• Build capacity and transfer ownership and responsibility from project staff and technical experts to local trainers and partners.
• Strengthen a cadre of master trainers who have participated in previous STOP AI courses on the use of USAID AI commodities.
• Provide trainer guides, participant manuals, slides and handouts, so that master trainers and the people they train at the regional level can replicate the trainings at the regional and district levels.
