This Layers “Specialized” course is an overview of important infectious and non-infectious diseases at different stages of pullets and layers production. The objective of the WVEPAH education program is to offer a highly specialized training on all specific aspects of layers health: pathology, epidemiology, genetics, nutrition, immunology, management, etc., in a format usable in your daily practice. The course also lays the foundation for more in depth studies on specific subjects covered in follow up courses. This course will be held in French by a team of world-class Course Masters. Among them: Dominique Balloy (FR), Vincent Guyonnet (CA), Moncef Bouzouaia (TN) , Stéphane Lemière (FR) , Hilde vanMeirhaeghe (BE), Robert Gauthier (CA), Abdelkader Amara (TN), Samuel Roulleau (FR).


  • Know how to evaluate the birds’ microenvironment in relation to flock health and welfare.
  • Gain advanced knowledge relating to mechanisms of disease causation for infectious and non-infectious diseases
  • Recognize normal poultry tissues and recognize abnormal poultry tissues, characterize lesions, and interpret their significance.
  • Understand modern diagnostic technologies including both field and laboratory diagnostics.
  • Plan a logical diagnostic approach to the investigation of disease (including the identification of risk and causative factors of poultry diseases).
  • Collect appropriate diagnostic samples and perform relevant diagnostic tests for disease investigation.
  • Know how to interpret diagnostic results
  • Develop preventive medicine protocols, including biosecurity, coccidiosis, and vaccination
  • Apply the judicious use of antibiotic therapy
  • Know supportive and alternative forms of treatment against pathogens


The training is done by professionals for professionals, it is a problem solving approach favoring exchanges on true clinical cases suggested by Course Masters and participants with a part of practical work (wet lab). The formal academic part of the training already known from other sources is intentionally limited but available in course notes or suggested readings.



Participants who complete the Module I “Key disciplines in poultry health” including the regulatory aspects taught by representatives of the OIE and a Module “Specialized” could obtain the academic diploma “Certificate in Animal Health: Poultry Production” awarded by the University of Luxemburg and whose regulatory aspects are validated worldwide by the OIE. The WVEPAH participants will join the international community of experts in Avian Health and Production.
