Senior Undersecretary Domingo F. Panganiban and Vice Governor Mark Leviste led the launching of the Compartmentalization Program of swine farms, which is one of the major components of the Integrated National Swine Production Initiatives for Recovery and Expansion (INSPIRE) Program of the Department of Agriculture. The activity was held at the Regina R. Mandanas Memorial Dreamzone, Capitol Compound, Batangas City, on November 8, 2022.

The initiative is part of the commitment of the national government to revitalize the Philippine livestock industry, which has been affected by the African Swine Fever (ASF).

During the event, the province of Batangas received ASF Test Kits from the DA-ITCPH as part of the compartmentalization surveillance system.

Batangas was the  first province to be cleared from African Swine Fever (ASF) that affected six of its municipalities. ### (Photos by Gian Carlo Luague, DA-AFID)
