Central America


Between 2010 and 2012, seven countries were supported in developing regulations to fight bovine encephalopathy. This involved analysing national and regional level legislation and standards on animal health, animal production, feed and food safety. Regulations were drafted following a participatory process. Most were approved one year after the project, with one of the participating countries receiving OIE recognition as disease-free. For other countries involved, this allowed them to open new markets for their animal products.
