The first edition of the Regional training seminar for OIE National Focal Points on Communication was held in Panamá City, Panamá, on March 15-17th. The meeting was organized thanks to the financial and logistical support of the Ministry of Livestock Development (Ministerio de Desarrollo Agropecuario - MIDA) in the logistical aspects of the meeting.

Technical contents and facilitation were coordinated by Dr Catherine Bertrand – Ferrandis, OIE Head of the Communication Unit, with the participation of Mr. Sebastián Gonzalo Oliel and Dr Vilma Gutierrez, from the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO – WHO), Dr. Valerie Vouligny, from the Life Animal Health Agency, Dr Luis O. Barcos and  Dra. Helia Lemos da Silva from the Regional Representation.

The activity provided the opportunity for national focal points to meet with experts from the OIE Headquarters as well as other Organizations, and the OIE Regional and Sub Regional Representation staff. It also allowed participants to interact with other focal points facing similar realities in their countries, as well as “hands on” training supervised by the OIE Experts.
