Simulation Exercises

This page is used to disseminate on the web announcement received from Member Countries on disease introduction simulation exercises taking place in their countries.

These simulation exercises are also disseminated to OIE’s Delegates and to the subscribers of the OIE-Info Distribution List before their implementation.

Most of the time, these simulation exercises are meant to test and practice, based on an established national contingency plan. The OIE encourages its Member Countries to share their experiences about the preparation of generic and/or disease specific national contingency plans and has dedicated a specific web page for National contingency plans.
