Font size - A A A +

The Management Committee of the GF‑TADs(1) held its 20th meeting on 19–20 September 2019 at FAO Headquarters.

During the meeting, which was led by Dr Juan Lubroth (FAO) and Dr Jean-Philippe Dop (OIE), the Management Committee decided to include African swine fever (ASF) as another priority disease for the GF‑TADs at global level, in addition to rinderpest (post-eradication), foot and mouth disease (FMD), peste des petits ruminants (PPR) and highly pathogenic avian influenza.

(1) The Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF‑TADs) is a joint initiative of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) that endeavours to empower global and regional alliances in the fight against Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs), to provide for capacity building and to assist in establishing programmes for the specific control of certain TADs based on global and regional priorities.
