This conference brought together veterinarians, researchers, regulatory officials, stakeholders and international NGO’s who are actively involved in the implementation of animal welfare policies in their countries to share their experiences on the implementation of the OIE standards. It also focused on the importance of strong Veterinary Services to support the implementation of OIE animal health and welfare standards, as animal health is a very important component of animal welfare.
The conference proceedings address the challenges that countries face and the best means for the OIE to support their efforts, as well as the needs of the future for the development of additional OIE animal welfare standards and scientific research in this domain.
