The first Global Animal Health Conference will take
place 15-16 November in London at EMEA's headquarters at Canary Wharf.
This conference is organised by the Drug Information Association (DIA)
in conjunction with the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the International
Federation for Animal Health (IFAH).
Among the topics to be explored at the conference are: the international
regulatory environment; recent and future innovations in animal health; and, the
issue of partnerships and alliances with the aim to advance worldwide treatment,
prevention and control of animal diseases.
Head of the Veterinary and Inspections Unit of the EMEA and Program
Co-Chair, David Mackay, commented that the agency is pleased to host a
conference to discuss important matters such as improving the regulatory

have highlighted the difficulty in gaining access
to effective animal health products around the world."
A number of international organisations, academic institutions, national
animal health authorities and industry associations will be represented at the
Dr. med. Brigitte Franke-Bray, director of DIA Europe, believes that the
conference, by providing a neutral forum, will facilitate dialogue among key
