About the Animal Health Task Force

The goal of the Animal Health Task Force is to improve communication among the three countries concerning animal diseases and to work to harmonize diagnostics as much as possible. An annual regional seminar organized by this Task Force and supported by IICA has proven to be successful at sharing technology, knowledge and expertise on several important animal diseases including avian and swine influenza, bovine tuberculosis and bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
