OIE’s role in the pandemic influenza H1N1 2009

There remain many questions about this disease. In this respect, the OIE has made a call for enhanced surveillance among swine populations and enhanced on-farm biosecurity measures – including the protection of pigs from exposure to potentially infected people – and has stressed the importance of a strong cooperation between veterinary services and public health authorities.

There remain many questions about this disease. In this respect, the OIE has made a call for enhanced surveillance among swine populations and enhanced on-farm biosecurity measures – including the protection of pigs from exposure to potentially infected people – and has stressed the importance of a strong cooperation between veterinary services and public health authorities.

The OIE continues to strongly advise all its Members to notify the disease linked with the now called “pandemic H1N1 2009” virus to the OIE when detected in animals, qualifying, on notification forms, this disease as “emerging disease”, because transparency will be key to manage and tackle this unprecedented global event.

OIE has called upon the expertise from OIE Reference Laboratories and Collaborating Centres, primarily through the OIE/FAO network of expertise on animal influenza called OFFLU to publicly share genetic sequences of influenza identified in swine in full transparency, to facilitate the early preparation of human and animal vaccines if needed.
