In what ways did your team contribute to the development of OIE-WAHIS?
The OIE−WAHIS platform will provide high-quality epidemiological and geospatial data to fuel in-depth analysis. The mapping system will be optimised.
We collect information from other countries to have an overall live picture of the animal health situation worldwide.”

Animal Disease Notification
How are you using the information contained on WAHIS today?
How will OIE-WAHIS help you improve animal health management in Switzerland?
J. S. To tackle animal diseases, we need transparency and a transdisciplinary approach. Crossing veterinary data with meteorological or social data will help us determine influential factors on the dissemination of diseases. For instance, OIE-WAHIS will help to better monitor the spread of animal diseases and their potential link with movement of populations.
The new OIE-WAHIS is coming soon!
