International collaboration

The FAO and the OIE have formed a Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) made up of seven of the most highly qualified individuals. The JAC also provides guidance to the Directors General of the OIE and FAO in, among others, approving rinderpest research proposals and high containment facilities responsible for safeguarding the virus.

Central pillars to the OIE’s role in the post-eradication era are the FAO-OIE rinderpest Joint Advisory Committee and the OIE Reference Laboratories for rinderpest; both provide technical support to the OIE.
