Seventh meeting of the Global Framework for Transboundary Animal Diseases Regional Steering Committee for Africa (SC7)

16-17 July 2012
The Africa region is a very heterogeneous continent where transboundary animal diseases occur as endemic or epidemic diseases, have varying impacts in terms of trade, but also in terms of social cohesion, have varying environmental impacts and may or not be regarded as important diseases to prevent, control and eradicate from the decision making and resource allocation perspective, whether for economic, social or public health considerations. The GF TADs Action Plan for Africa integrates the regional component of strategies decided at global level under the GF-TADs mechanism. Main objectives include facilitating regional and cross-border collaboration in the field of animal health, including networking activities; Improving national and regional knowledge and provision of reliable information/data on priority animal diseases.
