Animal Diseases

  • This portal gives easy access to resources and information on both terrestrial and aquatic animal diseases:
    The 117 Listed diseases by the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) (criteria for including diseases in the list are detailed in the WOAH Terrestrial and Aquatic Codes)
    Several emerging diseases and additional important diseases (which are not listed by the WOAH)
    More than 50 wildlife diseases which may have a serious impact on livestock health and public health and can adversely affect wildlife conservation.

Resolutions passed by the International Committee and recommendations issued by the Regional Commissions instructed the WOAH Headquarters to establish a single WOAH list of notifiable terrestrial and aquatic animal diseases to replace the former Lists A and List B.
