Compliance of the VSBs with OIE standards is low (43%) • Annual budgets may vary from USD 75 – 800,000 (independence ?) • Line Ministries play a passive to active role (independence ?) DISCUSSION
Compliance of the VSBs with OIE standards is low (43%) • Annual budgets may vary from USD 75 – 800,000 (independence ?) • Line Ministries play a passive to active role (independence ?) • Countries with no VSB : delays in adopting legislation • Little cross-border or regional cooperation or harminisation
IN CONCLUSION • Scarcity of resources, • Veterinary profession largely dominated by the public services • Low awareness of stakeholders • Functional VSB’s require the rule of law, democracy and the strict separa-tionof the three powers of the State.
IN CONCLUSION • Continue raising general awareness of requirements for good governan-ce of the veterinary services, • Establish VSB’s in countries that have not yet done so, • Improve compliance with OIE standards in other countries • Improve linkages between VSBs and VEEs in order to strengthen the grip of VSBs on the supply and demand.
IN CONCLUSION • Regional coordination and harmonisation is critical • Continental oversight ? • Learn from what VEEs are doing • Engage in twinning of VSBs
