In accordance with Article 4 of the Appendix to Resolution N° XVII of May 2004, a Management Committee of the the World Animal Health and Welfare Fund was established. In February 2010, the OIE Council decided that the new Management Committee of the World Fund would be composed of:
The main responsibility of the Management Committee is to recommend, after review and assessment, the adoption of the programme and the annual accounts of the OIE World Fund and to transmit them to the OIE Council for endorsement and then presentation for final adoption by the OIE World Assembly of Delegates from the 178 OIE Members.
The Management Committee has convened in annual ordinary meetings on four occasions to date (February 2007, May 2008, 2009 and 2010). The next meeting will take place on 18 May 2011 at the OIE Headquarters in Paris.
