Since 1981, hundreds of Nepalese villagers have been taught basic animal health care techniques after the introduction of a training scheme. Ten years later an evaluation was conducted to determine whether there was a continuing need for the courses & to assess their effectiveness. This book describes the course structure, content & approach, & presents the finding of the evaluation, offering an insight into a programme which could usefully be replicated in other rural areas all over the world.
