Webinar: Preparing for ASF


Since the first case of African swine fever (ASF) in the Americas was reported in July, the main international organizations dedicated to animal health, have been working together to support the region in establishing sanitary measures to stop the spread of the disease.  

Within The Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs),  an Emergency Management Regional Team was created, with the aim of coordinating and monitoring all the activities during the emergency. This committee under the IICA’s coordination, is launching a series of webinars on the most relevant topics related to ASF.    

This time, we will discuss about the  Legislative mechanisms and experiences in regulatory frameworks in preparing prevention and response measures against cross-border diseases, with Carmen Bullon from FAO, Carlos Orellana from SAG Chile, Pastor Alfonso from CaribVET, and Chrisianne Bruschke from Netherlands VS.
