|World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)||
The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) is the international organisation responsible for animal health and veterinary public health, the OIE plays a key role in setting international standards to reduce risks from animal pathogens and in building capacity to meet these standards to detect and respond to animal disease events whatever the source.
The OIE’s assistance targets the veterinary services of its Member Countries to better comply with OIE’s international standards for veterinary services through its capacity building platform, known as the Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS) Pathway. Stronger, well-governed veterinary services are better suited to detect and respond to disease outbreaks whatever their origin, whether they are naturally occurring, deliberate or accidental.
The PVS Pathway has a number of phased components to it including orientation, evaluation and planning stages, as well as a targeted support phase which includes joint OIE-WHO workshops to bridge veterinary services and public health services in the context of health security, PVS Sustainable Laboratory missions, and the Veterinary Legislation Support Programme.
A recent 2019 update to the OIE PVS Tool includes a greater focus on Veterinary Services contribution to bio-threat reduction, with references to the OIE Biological Threat Reduction Strategy 2015, Veterinary Services liaison with defence and intelligence agencies, and stronger coverage of issues such as laboratory biosafety and biosecurity.
Further information on the PVS Pathway, including all its stages.
Further assistance for capacity building for OIE Member Countries includes the Laboratory Twinning Programme. This initiative allows for candidate institutes to build capacity and expertise in a disease, skill, or subject matter related to the mandate of the OIE, through a time-bound partnership with either an OIE Reference Laboratory or an OIE Collaborating Center.
