5 5 GF-TADs for Europe - Introduction Regional priorities ̶ Diseases: ̶ HPAI, ASF, CSF, rabies, FMD, PPR and Brucellosis ̶ Rinderpest ̶ Any new emerging disease of regional concern ̶ Reinforcement of the VS good governance

6 6 GF-TADs for Europe - Introduction Outcomes of the RSC4 (2012): -Regional recommendations on priority diseases and governance -Discussion and validation of the regional 5 year GF-TADs Action Plan

7 7 GF-TADs for Europe - Recent activities Outcomes of the RSC5 (2013): -Regional recommendations on priority diseases and governance -‘Election’ of the members of the Steering Committee -Updates of the ToRs of the governance bodies -Updates of the 5-year Action Plan

9 9 GF-TADs for Europe RSC5 Recommendations  Recommendations on priority diseases Rabies – All countries in Europe should make rabies a notifiable disease, where this is not already the case; Intersectoral collaboration between animal and human health authorities be reinforced, using rabies as a flag ship disease to demonstrate the value of the One Health approach; management of stray dog populations be implemented in accordance with the OIE standard on stray dog population management (Chapter 7.7 of the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code), if appropriate; Endemically affected countries consider the need to set up a regional vaccine bank for rabies.
