TAFS Forum to host a workshop on global perception of FMD-free status in Argentina in April 2022

The TAFS Forum is organizing a workshop on a paradigm shift in the global perception of the “FMD-free with vaccination” status with the support of PROSAIA, CRA, and ABC in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 27-28 April 2022. The purpose of the workshop is to initiate a discussion among regional actors in the production and meat value chain on the equivalence of the "FMD-free with vaccination" status to the “FMD-free without vaccination” status. Stakeholders in South America are invited to discuss topics such as the advantages and disadvantages of opening trading markets with countries that are “FMD-free with vaccination” and the safeguards that would need to be in place. It is the first workshop of additional workshops to follow to continue the discussion with international stakeholders and to determine the way forward.
