The East Asia CVO forum was established in 2016 to create a platform for regular exchange of information and discussions on issues relating to animal health in this geographic sub-region. With several high impact transboundary animal diseases in Asia or a risk of entering, it was recognised that a technical forum would be beneficial to share information and discuss strategies for prevention and control of several transboundary animal diseases.
At the 2nd meeting of the East Asia CVOs forum held as a virtual meeting on 2nd July 2020, the importance of understanding the role wildlife play in animal and zoonotic diseases was highlighted as particularly important in East Asia.
In this regard, we organised the Virtual East Asia Contact Persons Meeting with technical discussions addressing wildlife from 8-9, Sep.

Technical presentations on wildlife were made by specialists on 8th, and discussions were made to identify the priorities and possible activities against transboundry animal disease in East Asia on 9th.
