Annual report
Healthy animals
for a better life
We work to improve
animal health and welfare
throughout the world
and thereby:
human health
Secure international trade
in animals and their products
Contribute to the quality
of life of populations
To achieve these objectives,
the 180 Member Countries set 3
priorities, within the framework of
the OIE’s 6th Strategic Plan (2016–2020).
At the end of its first year of operation,
here is a summary of the advances that
have been made:
1 Controlling
animal health
In a context of globalisation, the existence of animal health measures that make it
possible to prevent and control animal diseases is essential to stop them from
spreading and protect animal health and welfare, but also human health, the
economy and social well-being of populations.
50 international
we adopted or revised
25 new official
disease status
and control programmes for priority animal
diseases were recognised for entire countries
or for part of their territory
3 global
for control and eradication were supported
The OIE Strategy on
antimicrobial resistance and
the prudent use of antimicrobials
was published and annual
monitoring of antimicrobial use
in animals began
2 Ensuring
in communication
Knowledge of the world animal health situation and the sharing of veterinary expertise are
essential for effective management of animal diseases and the protection of populations.
This is why the OIE is constantly working to improve both.
1,464 reports
including immediate notifications of disease
and follow-up reports were submitted
by 114 countries through WAHIS
152 countries
were trained on the use of WAHIS
(World Animal Health Information System) by the OIE
3,000 people
received OIE notifications
via the WAHIS Alerts application
60 focal
were trained in best practice
for risk communication
3 Reinforcing
the resilience
of animal
health systems
The OIE continued to support Member Countries in reinforcing national Veterinary
Services, laboratories and veterinary education, through a range of programmes
designed to help them to implement its international standards.
33 PVS
were conducted to improve
the performance of Veterinary Services
48.6 million
vaccine doses
have been delivered since 2011 to prevent rabies,
peste des petits ruminants and foot-and-mouth disease
714 Delegates and National
Focal Points were trained
by the OIE on various subjects in the five regions
Optimising the governance
of the OIE
Governance and internal organisation were
revised. These changes aim to improve the
internal, administrative and budgetary
performance of the OIE, and to meet the
expectations of its Member Countries,
stakeholders and donors.
