annual reports on ASF


15. OIE weekly reports on the situation of ASF worldwide

The OIE (World Animal Health Information and Analysis Department) is now publishing a weekly report presenting an overview of the ASF events with ongoing outbreaks notified through the OIE's Early Warning System by its Members. A classification of the affected population (by backyard swine, farm swine and wild boar) was made considering their different roles in the epidemiology of the disease.
The weekly reports can be downloaded here.


16. OIE Awareness campaign material NEW

The OIE (Communication Unit) has published early February 2019 a set of ASF awareness campaign material. 6 posters are currently available in French, English, Spanish, Russian and Chinese versions:
- OIE general tools
- Commercial pigs farms
- Small backyard farmers
- Hunters
- Travellers
- Transport authorities and check point staff
This material can be downloaded and spread around from a One Drive folder.
