Appendice - Recommendations of the OIE International Conference on the Control of Infectious Animal Diseases by Vaccination, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 13 to 16 April 2004
|Author(s) :||A.A. Schudel & M. Lombard|
In recent years, epidemics of emerging and re-emerging infectious animal diseases and zoonoses have often been controlled by implementing a policy of mass slaughter. However, this approach to disease control poses considerable ethical, technical, ecological and economic problems and there is a need for alternative control strategies. Therefore, in 2004, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the International Association for Biologicals (IABS), and the National Animal Health Service in Argentina (Servicio Nacional de Sanidad Animal) organised an international conference on the control of infectious animal diseases by vaccination. The conference was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 13 to 16 April and was attended by over 300 scientists from some 50 countries.
