Discover the World Organisation for Animal Health’s (OIE) 2016 Annual Report!

2016 will be remembered as a milestone year for the OIE, the beginning of a new phase in the life of the Organisation as it evolves in both its operations and representative bodies. This report takes stock of the progress made under the framework of the 6th Strategic Plan (2016–2020), through practical examples that illustrate the work of OIE teams throughout the world.

Paris, 22 May 2017 – The Annual Report, presented today by Dr Monique Eloit, Director General of the OIE, reviews the events which marked 2016, in response to three key priorities set for the next five years: to control animal health risks, to ensure transparent communication and to strengthen the capacities of Veterinary Services.

 

Healthy animals for a better life

We work to protect the health and welfare of animals throughout the world, since they are the foundation stones of our communities’ economic prosperity and social and environmental well-being.

All over the world, the personnel of OIE Headquarters and the Regional and Sub-Regional Representations work alongside the national Veterinary Services of Member Countries and numerous experts, on a day-to-day basis, to expand the ambitious programme of activities developed to achieve the objectives set by the Organisation’s 6th Strategic Plan.



This year, the OIE Annual Report is available in several formats, to make it easier to share, promote interactiveness and to meet the needs and interests of as many people as possible.

The reader can access these different formats (video, interactive PDF and summary version) through the dedicated Web portal:
