Management Committee

In accordance with Article 4 of the Appendix to Resolution N° XVII of May 2004, a Management Committee of the World Animal Health and Welfare Fund (World Fund) was established. In February 2013, the OIE Council decided that the new Management Committee of the World Fund would be composed of: the President and two members designated by the Council of the OIE and chosen from among its own members; it is chaired by the President or, in the absence of the President, the Vice‐President. A representative of the Advisory Committee is invited to participate in the work of the Management Committee in a consultative capacity.

In 2019, the Management Committee is composed of

  • The President of the World Assembly of Delegates, Mark Schipp (Australia),
  • Dr Botlhe Michael Modisane (South Africa), Past President, and
  • OIE Council members, Dr Christianne Bruschke (The Netherlands) and Dr Majeed Al Qassimi (United Arab Emirates).


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 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 182 OIE Members.

The Management Committee has convened in annual ordinary meetings on thirteen occasions to date (February 2007, May 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019). The next meeting will take place on 20 May 2020 at the OIE Headquarters in Paris.
