The regional workshop on ‘Strengthening capacity to respond to disease emergencies’ was jointly organized by the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Crisis Management Centre for Animal Health (CMC-AH) in collaboration with the FAO office in Kathmandu, Nepal and the FAO regional Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD), utilizing funding provided by the European Union. The workshop took place at the Himalaya Hotel in Kathmandu from the 26th to the 28th of May 2014. Twenty veterinary officers, livestock officers, provincial directors and epidemiologists from regional ECTAD offices and veterinary services of the Kingdom of Bhutan, the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and Nepal involved in disease control attended the workshop. The FAO team comprised of one technical expert (from FAO-AGAH) and one communications officer from CMC-AH. The aim of the workshop is to present to participants the FAO’s Good Emergency Management Practice (GEMP) manual, a manual of accumulated knowledge on the efficient management and amelioration of animal disease outbreaks in emergency situations. The GEMP manual provides guidelines to animal health officials on preparing for, and responding to, animal health emergencies, and also defines global best practice for emergency animal disease preparedness and response. #FAO #REGIONAL_WORKSHOP #2014
