The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) hosted the 98th Session of the Executive Committee of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) European Commission for the Control of Foot and Mouth Disease (EuFMD), at its headquarters on 3–4 October 2019. [1]

The Committee, currently chaired by Ireland, is made up by Chief Veterinary Officers, Delegates of the European Members, international and regional organisations, development partners such as the European Commission, the FAO and the OIE.

Dr Jean-Philippe Dop, Deputy Director General of the OIE, welcomed the Committee and highlighted the good collaboration OIE has with EuFMD.

The Committee reviewed progress made in the work programme of EuFMD since the 43rd General Session of EuFMD (17–18 April 2019) [2]. It also approved the EuFMD Phase V Workplans [3], which include activities in support of the Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF–TADs)(1) and the implications of the GF–TADs programme on EuFMD support.

The support from EuFMD on OIE programmes and initiatives such as development of e-learning modules and trainings within the European neighbourhood and globally was acknowledged and will continue to be strengthened.

France kindly hosted the evening event.
