Angela Zhang  University of Sydney student and Asia-Bound Scholarship recipient

LAngela is a final year honours student from the University of Sydney completing a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience. She is undertaking an honours project to investigate the status of Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) in smallholder pig farms and village-based biosecurity practices in Cambodia. Since the first reported outbreak in Cambodia in 2010, PRRS has gained increasing attention as an important focus for community-level livestock disease control programmes. However, its epidemiological status has yet to be investigated fully. Angela’s project aims to establish baseline knowledge of the current beliefs and actions of smallholders towards PRRS as an important first step in understanding how the disease develops in rural communities and the impact of the disease at the household level. Angela then aims to use this information to suggest recommendations for smallholders to control and prevent the disease.
