A three year collaboration with Massey University under the FLAG (Farmers Leptopsirosis Action Group) banner, has led to the production of a series of excellent short videos covering all aspects of the disease.


Dr Julie Collins-Emerson launched the new videos at our national conference, acknowledging Rural Women NZ’s decades of support for this area of Massey research.

The seven short episodes cover:

1.  An introduction to Leptospirosis

2.  Leptospirosis in people

3.  Leptospirosis in livestock and pets

4.  Leptospirosis in the environment

5.  Diagnosing leptospirosis

6.  Control and prevention of leptospirosis

7.  Future perspectives of leptospirosis
