Organisation and missions

Whereas Regional Representations may be considered as the decentralised executive bodies of the OIE, the Regional Commissions are constituted by the national OIE Delegates and are entrusted with policy development at regional (continental) level.

The Regional Commission for Africa forms part of the five Regional Commissions created by the OIE to address the specific problems of the Veterinary Services and to organise the co-operation at regional level.

The Regional Commission's bureau is constituted of a President, two Vice-presidents and a Secretary-general. It is renewed every 3 years. Set up in 2001, renewed in 2003, 2006, 2009 and 2012, the new bureau was elected in May 2015. It consists of the following persons :

Adam Yacoub Hassan
  President

Dr Komla Batasse Daniel Batawui (Delegate from Togo).
Theogen Rutagwenda   Vice-president

Dr Theogen Rutagwenda (Delegate from Rwanda)
Ahmed Boughalem   Vice-president

Dr Ahmed Chawky Karim Boughalem (Delegate from Algeria)

 

   Ahmed Boughalem

  Secretary-General

Dr Gaston Djonwe (Delegate from Cameroon)

The Regional Commission organises (on average) every two years a Regional Conference devoted to technical topics and regional co-operation for the fight against the animal diseases. These Conferences take place in one of the countries of the region, The Regional Commission submits accounts of its activities to the World Assembly, to which it can also submit recommendations.

The next Regional Conference will take place in February 2019. The last Regional Conference took place in February 2017 in Namibia :
