Animal Health Conference to enhance environment for veterinary medicines
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 environment for animal medicines. “Recent outbreaks of avian influenza
, foot and mouth
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 conference.
Dr. med. Brigitte Franke-Bray, director of DIA Europe, believes that the conference, by providing a neutral forum, will facilitate dialogue among key players in veterinary medicine and animal health worldwide.
