6th Annual West Eurasia Roadmap Meeting for FMD control, Almaty, Kazakhstan, 28-30 April 2015::

The West Eurasia Regional Roadmap was launched back in 2008 in Shiraz (Iran). Over time and following the FMD Global Strategy, the targeted region has been further divided into two different clusters of countries. The first cluster included at that time: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The second cluster is made of countries of the Arabian Peninsula. Countries of both clusters belong to FMD virus pool 3. This meeting will be the 6th Regional Roadmap of countries belonging to cluster 1. Since 2008, evidence has been built on how FMD virus can easily spread from countries closer to South Asia (namely Afghanistan and Pakistan) to Iran and Turkey. Since 2012, some changes have occurred and several of those countries are now lacking international support in continuing their efforts to combat FMD as some of the international projects that supported activities have come to an end. There is a need to assess where countries are in their PCPFMD stages progress and stimulate formulation and implementation of harmonized national and regional programmes and activities.
