The Kazakh delegation from October 3-7, 2022 in Catania, Sicily is taking part in the 30th Conference of the Regional Commission for Europe of the 88th General Session of the World Assembly of Delegates of the World Organization for Animal Health.
The Kazakh delegation is represented by the Chairman of the Committee for Veterinary Control and Supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Kazakhstan A.Sh. Zhakupbayev, Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Veterinary Control and Supervision – delegate of the OIE S.B. Tyulegenov, Director General of the RSE at the National Reference Center for Veterinary Medicine Berdikulov M. A., Director General of the RSE at the Republican Veterinary Laboratory T.A. Yelshibaev and others representatives of veterinary medicine.
Representatives of Asian and European countries are participating in this conference.
As noted by Dr. Monique Elua, Director General of the World Organization for Animal Health: “This will be the first face-to-face conference of the Regional Commission since November 2019. The challenge posed by the COVID-19 pandemic has once again highlighted the need to expand scientific knowledge. In particular, to assess risks at the human/animal/environment interface, the need to strengthen the resilience and capacity of veterinary services to be well prepared to respond to potential future challenges, as well as the need to strengthen existing or conclude new agreements with key partners to be able to work actively and consistently for the common good. For this purpose, face-to-face Regional Conferences promote closer contact and active dialogue between delegates in the region, invited experts and key regional partners, as well as key employees of the World Organization for Animal Health, who lead the main programs and initiatives of the Organization. It will be a week conducive to meaningful debate and networking.”
The program is very rich, it was a great opportunity to exchange ideas, thoughts and recommendations. The speakers provided critical information in the system of wild animal health protection, taking into account the national experience of colleagues from European and Central Asian countries, as well as the necessary competencies of veterinary services in the modern world. This is a huge experience for our countries in improving well-being in the field of veterinary medicine with a common concept of Unified Animal Health.
Therefore, the participation of members of the World Organization for Animal Health in Conferences of Regional Commissions is very important and allows them to participate in discussions on topics of regional interest to ensure that all regional contributions are taken into account and receive the most adequate support from the World Organization for Animal Health
