26th Regional Conference of WOAH's Regional Commission for the Americas

Header

WELCOME MESSAGE 

Following an internal discussion, the Regional Commission for the Americas confirmed, during the 89th General Session, its willing to keep its  26th Conference in virtual format considering the still delicate situation in the Region in terms of post-pandemic recovery.  

Thus, the 26th Conference of the Regional Commission for the Americas will be held on 8 and 9 November, at 9.30 a.m. (Buenos Aires time), by videoconference (via Zoom). 

I am pleased to invite all Delegates and partners of the region to attend this important event.  

The challenge posed by the COVID-19 pandemic has once again highlighted the need for more scientific expertise in particular for assessing risks at the human/animal/environment interface, the need for building resilience and capacity in the Veterinary Services to be well prepared to respond to potential future challenges as well as, the need to strengthen existing agreements or establish new ones with key partners to be able to work actively and in coordination for the common good.  

For this purpose, Regional Conferences facilitate the dialog between Delegates in the Region, the invited experts and key regional partners along with key WOAH staff who lead the Organisation`s flagship programmes and initiatives.  

Participation of WOAH Members in the Conferences of the OIE Regional Commissions is therefore very important allowing them to be part of the discussions on topics of regional interest to ensure that all regional inputs are taken into account so that WOAH can provide the most appropriate support to its Members. 

As the Director General of the World Organisation for Animal Health, I will be honoured to welcome and to accompany all participants during such an important event for the Region.  

Looking forward to seeing you in the Conference!

Dr Monique Eloit
