Kyrgyzstan − Suspension of AHS-free status

Font size - A A A +

Kyrgyzstan was officially recognised as an African horse sickness (AHS)-free country by the OIE in 2017.

Following a mission conducted in Kyrgyzstan in April 2018 to monitor compliance with the Terrestrial Animal Health Code provisions for the maintenance of its AHS-free country status, this status is suspended with effect from 22 May 2018.

According to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 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 Animal Health Code.
