Menu Back to Global-Animal-Health-Conference-2016


The 5th in the series of Global Animal Health Conferences is organised with the support of the Organising Committee partners and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).

The conference is scheduled to take place on 17 November 2016, at the Lalit hotel, in New Delhi, India.

Government representatives, regulators, senior animal health experts, industry, academia, inter-governmental bodies and international organisations will exchange views on the importance of good regulatory governance of veterinary medicines. Sound governance and alignment to international standards promotes improved animal health that in turn contributes to socio-economic development. The focus will be on India and South Asia and the need for appropriate regulatory systems to enable the registration, market access and market control of quality assured animal health products, and the contribution this makes to the ‘One Health’ vision.

Adjacent Event: Pre-Conference Workshop on "Good Regulatory Practice for the Marketing Authorisation of Veterinary Products in an Asian Context",
14-16 November 2016, for Regulatory Authorities only.

A printed copy of the presentations will be provided to workshop attendees.

The presentations of the conference will not be printed. Both the workshop and the conference presentations will be available online to attendees.
