10th FAO/OIE Regional Steering Committee Meeting of GF-TADs for Asia and the Pacific

Bangkok, 10-11 July 2018

The Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs) is a joint FAO/OIE initiative that combines the strengths of both organisations launched in 2004. The coordinating mechanism aims to bring collective action in the region to support the control and eradication of Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs) and has yielded several important institutional and operational gains.

The Regional Steering Committee (RSC) Meeting of GF-TADs for Asia and the Pacific has been held 9 times since 2005. The meetings are used to share information, strengthen partnerships, discuss topical issues and explore ways to collaborate to improve regional activities in the prevention and control of priority TADs. The FAO and OIE organised the 10th RSC Meeting of GF-TADs on 10-11 July 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. The meeting was attended by total of 35 participants including Bureau of OIE Regional Commission, Regional Specialised Organisations, representatives from member countries, partner organisations and the GF-TADs global secretariat.
