GFRA-EuFMD Regional meeting FMDV in America
10 March 

Join the conversation on 10 March, for a regional meeting to discuss epidemiological surveillance in the Americas, focusing on how the different vaccine and antigen banks are designed and can be used to ensure FMD free status regionally. This virtual meeting brings together regional experts in the field who will highlight the current status and progress on FMD surveillance and regional vaccine banks. The aim is to learn the science behind risk analysis and the applicability of this knowledge towards the current design and possible needs of FMD vaccine banks for The Americas. The meeting will be in Spanish and English. Registration is free and needed to participate in the discussion. There will be two main sessions, one on Epidemiology, moderated by Guido Konig, Melissa McLaws, and Pamela Hullinger (EuFMD).
