Preface

Author(s) : M. Éloit

Summary :

Over the last nine decades, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) network of expertise (which includes 252 Reference Laboratories and 49 Collaborating Centres) has expanded significantly, and this has enabled the organisation to amass huge amounts of data on numerous issues related to infectious diseases. Much of this information is derived from the World Animal Health Information System (WAHIS), which is the OIE’s internet-based application for collating and disseminating animal disease information worldwide, including information on diseases of wild animals (WAHIS-Wild). A lot of information is made available on the OIE website, including descriptions of OIE-listed diseases, various disease information summaries, and web portals for diseases of particular global importance. Other sources of invaluable information are the OIE international standards, which are published in the Terrestrial Animal Health Code, the Manual of Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines for Terrestrial Animals, the Aquatic Animal Health Code and the Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals.
