OIE Support to Strengthen Veterinary Services in Ecuador

Under two of the OIE’s strategic objectives: “Building trust through transparency and communication” and “Improving the capacities and sustainability of Veterinary Services”, the Regional Representative, Dr. Luis Barcos, visited the Ecuatorian Veterinary Service, AGROCALIDAD ECUADOR, to discuss with its team the priority activities and upcoming challenges.

Topics related to antimicrobial resistance and the development of a National Action Plan coordinated and articulated between the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Health were highlighted. Issues related to the Official Status of diseases and eradication and control programs were also discussed.

During his time there, Dr. Barcos visited the facilities of AGROCALIDAD while meeting with several of the veterinarians of the service.

In a subsequent meeting that included the country’s Minister of Agriculture, the OIE expressed the availability of assistance through the PVS Process for the strengthening of the Veterinary Service.

Because protecting animals, is preserving our future.
