OIE Focal Point Activities
Australia’s World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Focal Point for Wildlife sits within WHA and provides support to Australia's OIE Delegate on matters relating to wildlife.
WHA activities include recording and interpreting wildlife disease information from official and non-official sources into the national electronic Wildlife Health Information System (eWHIS). The information allows us to meet our responsibilities to report wildlife health information to the OIE. See Australia's report to OIE on OIE WAHIS-wild . WHA provides a weekly digest of information to OIE Focal Points for Wildlife in our region.
We link with the National Animal Health Information Program (NAHIP) managed by Animal Health Australia (AHA) . WHA engages in regional and national wildlife health issues, and provides advice on wildlife issues to state, territory and Australian government agricultural, human health and environment agencies.
