Myanmar – Suspension of AHS-free status

Font size - A A A +

In 2014, Myanmar was officially recognised by the OIE as an ‘African horse sickness (AHS)-free country’.

Based on the assessment of Myanmar’s dossier to monitor compliance with the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code (Terrestrial Code) provisions for the maintenance of its AHS-free country status, this status is suspended with effect from 16 November 2018.

According to the standard operating procedure for the suspension of an officially recognised disease status, the country has two years to recover its previously recognised status by complying with the relevant requirements of the Terrestrial Code.
