Crisis Management Centre - Animal Health: Rapid Response Missions, October 2006 to October 2008
The Crisis Management Centre – Animal Health (CMC-AH) is a facility of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) for animal disease emergency response. Combining FAO’s expertise with that of OIE, the World Health Organization (WHO) and other partners, the CMC-AH provides technical and operational assistance to help affected governments assess epidemiological situations on the ground, diagnose transboundary animal disease (TAD) outbreaks and set-up immediate measures to help prevent or stop disease spread.
From October 2006 to October 2008, the Centre deployed 28 rapid response missions. These missions assisted 20 member countries – newly infected or highly at risk of infection – in their efforts to rapidly respond to outbreaks or new epidemiological situations of various TADs, including: African swine fever (ASF), foot‑and‑mouth disease (FMD), highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), peste des petits ruminants (PPR), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) and Rift Valley fever (RVF).
