The World Organisation for Animal Health has created five Regional Commissions to study the specific problems of the Veterinary Services and organize cooperation at the regional level:
Africa | Americas | Asia and the Pacific | Europe | Middle East
These Commissions, which are formed by the Delegates of the Member Countries, are chaired by an Executive Board composed of a President, two Vice-Presidents and a General Secretary. The composition of these Tables is renewed every three years.
Each Commission organizes a Conference every two years in one of the countries of the region. These conferences deal with technical issues and organize regional cooperation for the control of animal diseases. In view of the global health situation with respect to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the face-to-face meeting has been suspended. However, to be able to address regional needs, the 25th Conference of the OIE Regional Commission for the Americas was held on 22-23 September 2020, in VIRTUAL format. You can access the Regional Conferences of the Americas by clicking here.
In addition, every year during the General Session in the month of May, a meeting of each Regional Commission is held. Below you can find the last three reports of these meetings.
The Board of the Commission was renewed, for a term of three years, in May 2018. It is currently composed as follows:
