OVAG's statement of intent is that there exists a sustainable regional cadre of professionals able to provide capacity building, advice, guidance and management of One Health matters with wildlife in Indonesia and Malaysia. To this end, paticipants, no matter where they are from, can access international technical and strategic training opportunities.
One example is an internship provided to participants in collaboration with CHester Zoo, OVAID and the University of Liverpool. This internship gives opportunities for up to six Indonesian/Malaysian vets who are working in orangutan rescue centers to do a 3 months training in the UK. Click here for more details.
In the past, vet Yenny and Ricko (both are OVAG committee members) have had the chance to do a vocatinal training in US zoos. Their complete story is here
