Last June 30th and July 1st, the Director General of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), Dr Bernard Vallat, and the President of the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation, Mr Bernard Lozé, have participated in Paris in the Joint International Meeting on early detection and prevention of African Swine Fever (ASF) and other animal health issues at the wildlife-livestock-human interface.

The development of an effective surveillance requires a collective awareness of the importance of their role, a well-structured organisation, including a formal articulation with health authorities, veterinary and environmental services and more ambitious training programs. This is particularly relevant for animal diseases, such as ASF.

Cooperation between the OIE and the CIC

In 2011, the OIE and the CIC have signed a cooperation agreement to strength this collaboration with a view to enhancing the capacity of countries in early detection, official notification and response to animal diseases, including those transmissible to humans (zoonoses), especially in wild animals, thereby contributing to biodiversity conservation, as well as animal and human health.

They also cooperate by improving communication among countries and between National Veterinary Services and National Hunting and Fishing Associations through the promotion of the networks of professional experts on epidemiology and control of wildlife diseases, working out cooperation Agreement with Veterinary Services, operational guidelines and capacity building with the support of the global networks of the OIE Regional Offices, Reference Laboratories and Collaborating Centres for control of wildlife diseases.
