At a time when the world is facing a pandemic, the importance of surveillance for animal diseases has become crucial.

 

To support countries that maintain global transparency and the reporting of public and animal health events, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) is launching the new World Animal Health Information System ( OIE-WAHIS ).

 

 

OIE-WAHIS (OIE World Animal Health Information System) is a unique comprehensive database through which information on the animal health situation worldwide is reported and disseminated throughout the world.

 

OIE-WAHIS data reflects the information gathered by the Veterinary Services from OIE Members and non-Members Countries and Territories on OIE-listed diseases in domestic animals and wildlife, as well as on emerging diseases and zoonoses.

 

All this information can be publicly accessed and visualized on this interface. OIE-WAHIS replaces and significantly extends the former web interface named WAHIS providing access to all reported data since 2005.

 

This new public interface includes data extraction tools, interactive mapping tools and dashboards to support data consultation, visualization and extraction of officially validated animal health data.

 

 

Experts estimate that around 20% of the world's production losses can be attributed to animal diseases.

Maintaining their health, through monitoring of disease outbreaks followed by appropriate action, is essential to protect food security and food availability.
