GF-TADs Strategy for 2021–2025. Enhancing control of transboundary animal diseases for global health
Since 2004, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) have cooperated in the Global Framework for the Progressive Control of Transboundary Animal Diseases (GF-TADs) to reduce the threat from transboundary animal diseases (TADs) to food security, livelihoods and safe trade.
As a result of the global web of transmission of disease agents, a multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary approach, and close coordination of all actors at the national, regional and global levels are essential to the success of preventing, detecting and responding to TADs. Outlining and refining this approach is the purpose of the GF-TADs’ Strategy for 2021-2025. This document is intended for all stakeholders and potential technical or funding organisations who have an interest in becoming a partner in the control of TADs.
