Event for better environment for vet medicines

The first Global Animal Health Conference will take place on November 15-16 in London. It is organised by the Drug Information Association (DIA) in conjunction with the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the International Federation for Animal Health (IFAH).

Venue is the EMEA's headquarters at Canary Wharf.

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.

Regulatory environment
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 Disease and bluetongue 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.

Facilitate dialogue
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.
